Action London to Paris Bike Ride Classic Route

Registration has now closed for our 2016 London to Paris challenge. Please check back soon for details about our 2017 trip and to register.

A route steeped in history. Beginning in London this challenge takes you through the beautiful and rolling countryside of Kent and down to the white cliffs of Dover for your short ferry crossing over to Calais. The Classic Route takes you along quiet roads and through villages and towns of northern France. You'll ride past small War Cemeteries such as at Noordpeene and Gauchin, a reminder of the remarkable history of this region as you cycle on to Arras, a lovely old town in which many buildings have been restored to their pre-First World War condition.

Skirting round Bapaume, an ancient fortified town which was heavily targeted during both World Wars you’ll soon be crossing the River Somme before heading on to the town of Compiègne which lies on the banks of the River Oise. 

Reaching the suburbs of Paris your final leg takes you past distinctive landmarks of this wonderful city as you head for the Eiffel Tower – your finishing point where together we celebrate to mark your huge achievement.
