Event Description

Join us on an amazing four-day cycle challenge from the sandy beaches of Bournemouth, to the beautiful destination of Paris. You’ll have an unforgettable long weekend as you cycle more than 300 miles through some of the best English and French countryside, passing through small villages, medieval market towns and the iconic Normandy Landing Beaches.

Bournemouth to Paris itinerary

Leaving Bournemouth, we take the coast road towards Christchurch and onwards through the picturesque New Forest, before bedding down for our last night on British soil in Portsmouth. After catching the morning ferry to Cherbourg, we hug the beautiful French coastline, taking in the Normandy Landing Beaches. We then start to head inland, passing through some of France’s most stunning northern countryside and villages. With long days in the saddle and some strenuous hill-climbs, the sight of the Eiffel Tower, our finishing point, will evoke a real sense of achievement. Our last day in Paris allows us to explore the sights and soak up the romantic atmosphere of this majestic city!
