Cycle from London to Paris
4-8 September 2024

September 11, 2023

We are partnering with Discover Adventure to provide you with one of the greatest cycling challenges in Europe… the London to Paris Cycle challenge!

Your pedal power will see you pass through the picturesque countryside in Kent, cross the Channel and continuing through the small villages and medieval market towns of Northern France.

With long days in the saddle and some strenuous hill-climbs, the sight of the Eiffel Tower at the finishing point brings a real sense of achievement and pride in yourself and what your body can do! The last day in Paris allows everyone on the challenge to explore the sights and soak up the romantic atmosphere of this majestic city!

Check out this video to show you why people j’adore this cycling challenge!
