You ride your bike, we take care of the rest. 

We want you to take in the scenery and really enjoy your ride to Paris. To take the stress of logistics away, we look after your luggage, provide mechanical support, have medics on hand and even a sports therapist to help you recover. 

When we get to Paris, we let our hair down and celebrate what we have achieved together. The next day, you can enjoy a comfortable Eurostar train ride back to the UK where your bike will be waiting for you to collect.


Hampton Court > Newhaven 

A fast and flat 122km/400m following the Downs Link to the coast. Hitting urban gravel almost from the off before punching south with the chalky and flinty trails whizzing beneath your tyres.


Dieppe > Vernon

The Queen Stage covering 140km/1350m of rolling French trails, dipping in and out of forests, through picture postcard villages and finishing along the banks of the Seine. It’s a long day, but with an early start and late cut off there’s time to look up and enjoy the views.


Vernon > Paris

A flat roll-out along the Seine to ease the legs off before a string of brutal climbs and adrenaline fuelled descents.

Open meadows, meanders down single track, cruises along historic towpaths and rolls over leafy woodland before suddenly opening up to a view of the Eiffel tower, with the final 10 km along a protected cycle lane all the way to the finish line



Prepare for a sunrise start as we depart Hampton Court for the coast.

This is the only day of riding with any kind of time pressure, as we take the Thames path south to catch a ferry in Newhaven. We leave early to ensure we have plenty of time to enjoy the ride through the English countryside.

Wake up to a continental hotel breakfast before you hit the trails for your first day riding in France. 

With no ferries to catch there’s less pressure on the timings today, but with a days riding already in your legs it’s still a tough day in the saddle.

The stunning final stage of this off-road adventure was designed by Ultra-endurance racer & adventure cyclist  Sofiane Sehili. The native Parisienne has found what we believe to be the best possible off-road route to the Eiffel Tower.

Enjoy some well-earned post-ride celebrations before hitting the hay in 4* Parisienne hotel.

A leisurely breakfast before making your way to Gare du Nord to head home on the Eurostar, with a coach transfer to Imber Court where your bike will be waiting for you to collect.

If you are in doubt as to your fitness then we recommend you have a medical check-up before registering.

We recommend finding a hotel in or close to Esher. With an early start the next morning for Stage 1, you’ll get a bit more of a lie in! To find a local hotel on click here.
