London to Paris Cycle Challenge (TDF)

5 days
Grade 1

About the challenge

Cycling from London to Paris is one of the great cycle experiences in Europe. Passing through picturesque countryside, we cross the Channel and continue through the small villages and medieval market towns of Northern France. With long days in the saddle and some strenuous hill-climbs, the sight of the Eiffel Tower, our finishing point, will evoke a real sense of achievement. Our last day in Paris allows us to explore the sights and soak up the romantic atmosphere of this majestic city as well as seeing the Tour de France!
