4th-8th September 2013
Come with us as we cycle from London to Paris!
Our London to Paris challenge will see us cycling 234 miles (377km) over four days, through two countries. We set off bright and early from Crystal Palace and head south to the coast along small country roads. An overnight ferry takes us to Calais and we arrive in La Belle France early on day two. We then pedal from Calais to Abbeville through the picturesque countryside of Northern France.
Our third day follows the river Somme out of Abbeville and our exciting journey continues past pretty French hamlets and through the beautiful countryside to the town of Beauvais.
The penultimate day of our challenge will push our stamina with over 73 miles (118km) of cycling and 100 metres of ascent to Paris and the famous Arc de Triomphe, end point of the Tour de France. The race will end with a glass of champagne and a fantastic feeling of achievement! The next day, we travel back to the UK in the style and well earned comfort of the Eurostar.
