The Grand Depart of the Tour de France is always exciting, but here at Hotchillee HQ it’s extra special because as the stages tick by our own LONDON-PARIS Grand Depart gets nearer, and the countdown to ride to the Tour de France finish is well and truly on!   

We know the next couple of weeks will fly by in a haze of yellow, green and polka dot and it won’t be long until our LONDON-PARIS peloton is rolling into Paris and, for the first time ever, riding the Tour de France Femmes course on closed roads through central Paris before watching the pros from Grandstand seating.  

Entries for 2022 are closed, but if you’ve not signed up for this year’s LONDON-PARIS or, even if you are but know you’ll be back next year too, now’s your chance to register your interest for 2023.
