London to Paris bike ride

Join the 2018 team:

25th – 29th July 2018

Four days, three hundred miles, two capital cities, ready to ride?

Starting in London, you will cycle through the beautiful Kent countryside to Dover, before crossing the Channel to Calais. The route then takes you along quiet French country lanes, through traditional market towns, passing the war memorials and cemeteries of the Somme.

The pièce de résistance of this cycle challenge will be the final cycle up the Champs Elysées to the Arc de Triomphe, following in the tyre tracks of the cycling greats, before watching them cycle the same route the next day in finale of the Tour de France!

Global Adventure Challenges cater for all levels of ability, and combine specialist cycling experience with an excellent support crew to help you through this challenge, leaving you to have fun, enjoy the team spirit and focus on your goal of reaching Paris.
