London to Paris is another of the classic rides to tick off your list.
This ride is now fully booked.
The Itinerary is as follows; (Mileage is approximate)
Saturday 2nd: We will start our epic voyage from Richmond Park and will ride to Brighton and then along the coast to Newhaven to catch our night ferry crossing to Dieppe. (70 miles)
Sunday 3rd: An early start and riding on the Avenue Verte, away from busy roads and towards Paris! We should arrive by the evening and with the magical sight of the Eiffel Tower looming before us, we shall have reached our destination. An evening out on the town to celebrate with a glass or two of wine and rest our weary legs. (105 miles)
Monday 4th: We have a whole day to experience the joys that Paris has to offer. Treasures such as the Louvre, Centre Pompidou and Montmartre awaits. Or maybe a trip to the Palace of Versailles by bike and a picnic on the banks of the Grand Canal.
Tuesday 5th: Jubilee Day and our last day in Paris but with a late check out of 5pm we have some last minute sight seeing to do. After a bit of Al Fresco dining, we head back towards Dieppe. (105 miles)
Wednesday 6th: An Early Morning Ferry back across Le Channel and a train ride back to London and rest our weary heads. Where were you on Jubilee Day?
