The route

Starting in London, this 260 mile ride will take you through glorious English countryside, quiet French country lanes, through traditional market towns with views of the rolling green hills of northern France. 

Cycling is France's favourite sport, so don’t be surprised when the locals stop to cheer you on.

The pièce de résistance of this cycle will be the chance to ride the last few miles of the Tour de France route through Paris to finish at the Eiffel Tower, then the following day you get to soak up the atmosphere of the final stage action live from the world famous Champs-Élysées, before celebrating your achievements in this fabulous capital. 
The ride caters for all levels of ability and this unique cycling experience will see you fully supported by the crew, leaving you to just cycle, enjoy the team spirit and focus on your goal of reaching Paris.
