The following gives you a brief taste of the charity cycling challenge ahead but for more detailed information please do not hesitate to contact one of the Overseas Team on 020 7424 5511 who will be delighted to help you!

Day 1: London to Calais
Our challenge begins bright and early from Crystal Palace heading south towards the coast. Today's route winds through the beautiful Kent countryside before we reach the famous white cliffs of Dover. From here we catch the ferry to Calais for our first overnight stop.
95 miles (approx)

Day 2: Calais to Amiens
La belle France! Stunning picturesque countryside awaits us in northern France as we travel south from Calais to Desvre, a small market town known for its ceramics. We then follow river valleys before we enjoy a hearty lunch ready to hop back on the saddle! Our afternoon's ride takes us within close proximity of the Battle of Agincourt and we then find our resting place for the night in Amiens, which sits close to the banks of the River Somme.
100 miles (approx)

Day 3: Amiens to Paris
Our final day of cycling and the big push to Paris! We are still treated to some stunning countryside before we enjoy one last lunch on the road. After lunch we follow the river down through the suburbs until we reach the Bois de Boulogne - the largest park in Paris. We then have a short ride along the famous wide boulevards of Paris before reaching our finishing point at the Eiffel Tower!
60 miles (approx)

Day 4: Paris to London
The day is yours to soak up the Parisian way of life, explore the city, and watch the finale of the Tour De France! Our Eurostar will be departing in the evening to give you as much time as possible to soak up the celebratory atmosphere. The Eurostar arrives into St Pancras in the late evening, here you will collect your bikes and continue with your journey home.
