About & Details

We run the London to Paris Cycle (3 Day) as a bespoke event. For bookings of 10 or more, we run this as an exclusive event on the dates of your choosing from April to October. To book any number of participants on to an event, simply select the date in the calendar and follow the booking procedure. You will then receive an automated confirmation and full details will follow from our office in due course.

This trip takes you between two most iconic capital cities in the world, and between two of the most famous points: Greenwich Observatory in London, and the Eiffel Tower in Paris. The going is not as flat as many people think, but you do pass through the classic countryside in Kent, and the Pas de Calais, Somme and Oise regions of France. The road parts are done under your own pedal-power. The wet part goes via the most famous channel crossing: Dover to Calais. On your day in Paris, you could always round it off with a visit to Notre Dame. On a bike, you feel the wind in your face, and get a real chance to explore some beautiful corners of England and France on the way. Once out of London, you pass through one of the harder sections of the route, as you go through Kent and the North Downs. The countryside is verdant and remarkably much as it was in past centuries. From Calais, you head inland and south. History will surround you on this ride – a stark reminder of the importance of these lands and of the wars that have been fought there.

You’ll stay one night each in Dover, Amiens, and Paris. In Paris, if you want you can take the time to soak up the atmosphere of one of the most romantic cities in the world: its restaurants, cafés, museums, and nightlife.

Maximum Adventure can operate this ride on a bespoke basis on your choice of dates, over a 4-day itinerary.

Itinerary

  • Day 1 - London to Dover

    Typically we meet at 6.30am at the Greenwich Observatory to start riding at 7am. The route takes in Greenwich Park, Shooters Hill and then follows the Thames corridor through to Dartford. From there we skirt Maidstone passing through Coxheath, Lenham and over the Kent Downs towards Folkestone. From Folkestone, the route follows the coast to Dover, where we stay the night.
    80 miles (130km)

  • Day 2 - Calais to Amiens

    After breakfast, we take the ferry to Calais, cycle through the old town centre and begin our route on minor roads crossing through beautiful rolling countryside. The road surfaces are generally good and the chances to stop at the roadside are plentiful. Passing through numerous small villages, we cycle through Licques, Frévent and Doullens, finishing the day in the town of Amiens.
    90 miles (145km)

  • Day 3 - Amiens to Paris

    Leaving Amiens it is a fast ride south through the villages of Bresles and Persan and past open fields to cross the River Oise at Beaumont-sur-Oise. Paris comes into sight and on entering the outskirts there are some steep, winding descents down to the River Seine. From here we head to the Trocadero for fantastic views over Paris and make the final ride down to the Eiffel Tower, across the Place de Concord and up the Champs Elysees with a victory lap around the Arc de Triomphe.
    85 miles (140km)

  • Day 4 - Paris: 

    There is a free morning in Paris for sightseeing before making our way home via Eurostar. Why not visit a museum or gallery before travelling back to the UK.  Return times range between 12 noon and 6pm.
