Paris to Nice Cycle
Retrace the pedal strokes of some of the greatest cyclist of all-time, including seven-time Paris–Nice winner Sean Kelly and more recent champions Bradley Wiggins and Geraint Thomas.
The route begins at the Eiffel Tower in Paris before heading into the wheat and sunflower fields of rural France. The gentle rolling hills that form much of your landscape en-route provide provide you with the perfect preparation for the Col de la Faucille (1323m), a climb that has featured many times in the Tour de France, and then the wonderful descent to Geneva and its beautiful lake!
From lakeside Geneva you continue through the Alps and Provence, following part of the historic Route Napoleon. You will pass through beautiful scenery of towering mountain peaks, spectacular limestone cliffs and gorges, dense forests and lavender fields. With long, challenging days in the saddle, the magnificence of the landscapes will motivates you to keep pedalling!
Your unforgettable ride ends with a fabulous descent from the hills through the Gorge du Loup to Nice and the beach, where you have time to relax and appreciate your huge achievement.
