London to Paris Bike Ride – Tour de France Finale Challenge
- This event has passed.
The London to Paris Bike Ride is an awesome cycling challenge and is by far one of the best fundraising events in Europe attracting hundreds of riders each year and raising thousands for charities nationwide. Whether you’re a regular cyclist or new to cycling, looking to participate as part of a group or a solo cyclist – this is the perfect charity cycle event for you.
You will arrive in Paris as a peloton the day before the Tour de France is due to finish. This means you will have the chance to watch the finale of this iconic road race as it ends in the French capital.
Spend 4 days in the saddle, cycling 308 miles from capital to capital. The journey begins in London with the route taking you through glorious English countryside as you cycle from Kent to Dover, before crossing the Channel to Calais. Once across the water start cycling ‘French style’, remembering to keep to the right (!), then push on cycling along quiet French country lanes, through traditional market towns with views of the rolling green hills of northern France, passing the war memorials and cemeteries of the Somme.
On entering Paris, the home stretch takes you around the Arc de Triomphe and down the Champs Elysées. A spectacular finish line awaits at the Eiffel Tower! Then it’s time to celebrate your fantastic achievement, in this magical city.
There are two pricing options available for the bike ride and it is important you understand these and choose the right option for you.
