On 27th June 2019, we'll be cycling from London to Paris in three days, a 300km journey of fun or torture, you decide? Fancy joining us next year? Get in touch..
DAY ONE - LONDON TO NEWHAVEN (100km)
Leaving Princess Alice Hospice in Esher, just to the West of London we head off to Box Hill, one of Britain's iconic climbs. Up and down we go heading south towards our first stop, Tulley's Farm, almost at the top of Turners Hill. Our biggest day of climbing we continue south across the downs until we reach Newhaven and the ferry terminal, crossing the channel in about 5 hours, we reach Dieppe just in time for bed (after a cycling up a small hill).
Day TWO - DIEPPE TO BEAUVAIS (105km)
Hopefully after a restful nights sleep we head towards the Avenue Verte, a disused railway track that's been turned into a cycle path. A nice gentle climb along the former railway leads us to Neufchatel en Bray where we stop off for water and maybe a coffee before climbing further to Gaillefontaine our lunch stop. A simple lunch before we smash the fast down hill section to Songeons followed by our final climb into Beauvais.
DAY THREE - BEAUVAIS TO PARIS (90km)
Our shortest and probably slowest day with weary legs and a stonking great hill on the outskirts of Beauvais, the remainder is relatively flat with progress only hampered by congested roads and traffic heading in to Paris. Finally reaching the Arc de Triomphe where we head right quickly down to the Eiffel Tower and a well earned beer or two.
