The incredible journey

Leaving the smoke of London behind you, the route passes through the glorious English countryside as you cycle from Kent to Dover, before crossing the Channel.

Once across the water, you'll start cycling ‘French style’, remembering to keep to the right! You will cycle along quiet French country lanes, through traditional market towns with views of the rolling green hills of Northern France.

A spectacular finish awaits you as you follow in the tyre tracks of Tour de France champions. Cycling up the Champs Elysées to the Arc de Triomphe, before reaching the finish line at the Eiffel Tower.
