London to Paris Cycle
Cycling from London to Paris is one of the great cycle experiences in Europe.
The route passes through the picturesque Kent countryside before you hop on the train through the Channel Tunnel to France. There, you travel through the north of the country, passing through its small villages and medieval towns, eventually arriving in Paris, with the ride finishing at the foot of the Eiffel Tower.
This is a significant challenge and you will need experience of long days in the saddle. The shortest day is around 116 km (73 miles) and the longest is 167 km (104 miles).
Please note that food and accommodation will both be provided. Accommodation is generally in low-to-mid-range hotels and rooms are usually twinshare. Breakfast and dinner will be available at the hotel and there will be buffet-style lunch stops along the route to help keep your energy levels high.
With this trip, there is the option of a bike courier service so that your bike can be returned to you at home after the challenge. The standard cost of this is £89.
