Celebrating 19 years of cycling for Action
BRAND NEW DUNKIRK ROUTE
RIDE WITH THE BEST
PEDAL FOR TINY LIVES
Action have been running this event for over 18 years taking more than 5000 cyclists to Paris.
In 2018 we’ll be riding a particularly special route though Dunkirk, Cambrai and Soissons. 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 Dunkirk. In France we’ll head South through small villages and farmland which saw a great deal of action in WW1. You’ll notice the Flemish influence in the region as it used to be part of Flanders. Day 2 finishes in Cambrai, a town which dates back to Roman times.
The next day is steeped in history as you’ll pass through an area involved in the WW1 Battles of the Aisne, and many of the villages have cemeteries and memorials to the fallen. You’ll be able to stop and take in the sights at your leisure before resting your head in Soissons, an ancient town which lies on the River Aisne.
Our final day of cycling takes us southwest 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.”- Shezan Aslam, Director at Black and White Hospitality Management
