Celebrating 20 years of cycling London to Paris for Action




We’ve taken over 5,000 cyclists to Paris since 2000 - join us in 2019 and help us to celebrate our 20th anniversary!

In 2019 we’ll be riding a particularly special route as it’s the same route that we took on our very first ride 19 years ago. Kicking off in London we’ll ride along the rolling fields and villages of rural Kent, passing orchards and traditional oast houses and tackling the North Downs before taking the ferry from Dover to Calais. In France we’ll head South through ancient Desvres onto Abbeville, on the River Somme. Abbeville suffered badly from WW2 air raids, but its beautiful Flemish-style architecture is still in evidence.

The next day we leave Abbeville behind us we follow the River Somme east out of the town in the direction of Amiens. These lands are renowned for the terrible battles of the First World War. Our route soon turns south and we finish the day in Beauvais.

Our final day’s cycling takes us over the river Théram and south of Beauvais towards the great capital city, we head towards the small town of Meru and continue south through beautiful countryside bringing us to the suburbs of Paris where we’ll make our way to the big finale under the Eiffel Tower! That evening we’ll celebrate with a few glasses of bubbly before heading out to see the sights of the capital. The adventure concludes with the fantastic opportunity to catch the action of the Tour de France.

“From the moment we signed up, our team of 35 were thoroughly looked after by the Action staff who went above and beyond to make sure we had the best experience. Everything was done for us, which meant all we had to do was concentrate on making it to Paris! The ride itself was really enjoyable and allowed us all to bond and create memories we’ll never forget. Couldn’t recommend this event highly enough – perfect for any team or company looking for a expertly run challenge with a great bunch of people.”
