Route & Itinerary

The full course length is about 280 miles and is split into 7 stages averaging 40 or so miles as outlined below. The exact route, distance, locations of rest stops, and GPS topography will be released via the Participant Area in Spring 2016. 

Itinerary & Stages

All riders cycle the first stage from London, on and off the ferry (a stage which totals around 5 miles), and the final stage in to Paris. Outside of this is up to riders to decide which stages they wish to cycle (generally all of them as a solo rider!) When not cycling a stage bikes are transported forward to the next rest stop on adapted vehicles whilst riders follow by coach, allowing some valuable rest & recuperation time. If entered as a 2-man teams the only rule is that at least one cyclist must be on the road at all times.
