We are sure this unique Adventure Café event will inspire and enthuse experienced cyclists out there, as well as those who are new to the sport, but want an unforgettable challenge. This grand 280 mile route from London (Greenwich) to Central Paris is a classic, with a carefully thought out route, utilising a mixture of good fast direct roads, and small country back roads. We have taken time to consider our routes in and out of London and Paris to make them as enjoyable and pain free as possible! Ride from one exciting European capital to another—in just four days!

Upon leaving the familiar sights of London, with fantastic views from Greenwich Park we pass through England’s delightful Kent countryside, alongside the North Downs and to the White Cliffs of Dover. We’ll make a stop at the historic crossing point of the River Medway at Rochester for refreshments along the way. Dinner is taken on board our Ferry crossing before our first night’s rest in Calais. Our ride through France takes us through the attractive Pas de Calais area, on fast open country roads. We’ll glimpse poppy fields through the Somme valley and stay en route in charming French villages. We cycle on through the picturesque Picardy countryside and on our approach to Paris, we really get going! It’s downhill into Central Paris and we’ll eventually pass right beside the impressive Arc de Triomphe and swoop along the grand Champs Elysees to our finish point, bang in the middle of the excitement of Paris. From one capital to the other…. The evening is then yours to enjoy; celebrate in this beautiful and romantic capital. You stay in Paris and the following day (aching legs permitted!) you are free to sample the delights of city (Typical early afternoon return on the Eurostar from Gare du Nord) before catching the Eurostar train / flight directly back to London. You will be reunited with your bike back in London. This could be the start of something big…
