Our exciting folding bike challenge takes you from the heart of London and the London eye, to the iconic French capital of Paris.

Whilst en-route, there’ll be 3 stops a day – A morning, an afternoon stop for a well deserved break, warm drink and a light snack… With a longer midday lunch stop to refuel properly.

You’ll be riding 400km, over the 4 days.

Day 1
You’ll leave from the iconic London eye and head out of the capital and onto rural roads of the south east of England, with varied landscapes you’ll ride through one of the two national parks that are situated in the South east, ending day 1 with a well earned down hill descent into Portsmouth..

After a meal and a change of transport, you’ll have a relaxing night’s sleep on the ferry, travelling through the night and starting day 2, riding off the ferry and onto the quiet roads of Northern France.

Day 2
You’ll be immersed in the French lifestyle through the beautiful countryside and quiet roads of northern France. Experiencing a true sense of achievement that evening knowing that you’ve cycled your folding bike with other fellow ‘Folders’ another 100km that day.

And with every evening you’ll enjoy an evening meal and a well deserved sleep, with the knowledge that you are another day closer to achieving your challenge of riding from Capital to Capital.

Day 3 & 4
More of the same over these two days, sleepy towns, picturesque views and getting closer and closer to your final destination of Paris and the Eiffel tower.

By day 4 the realization will dawn on the whole group of the magnitude of your accomplishment when the outskirts of Paris and the stunning views come into view. Our route into Paris has been critiqued by our guides over a decade to give you in our opinion the best whistle stop tour into Paris, via Versailles, Long champe, the Arc de Triomphe – and finishing up at the Eiffel tower.

The final evening you’ll see the group one last time, not for your daily briefing to prepare yourself for another day in the saddle, but to celebrate the folding bike tour with an evening meal, to savor the small, to reminisce the big moments of this trip.

Travel home day – Starting off with a breakfast to nurse any of the French cuisine , wine and cognac’s from the night before, we get back on to our Bicycles for a short pedal to the Gare du Nord. Where you’ll meet your support team for one last time to collect your luggage, fold your bike away and get onto the Eurostar for the transfer back to the UK.

IF you’ve never done an event like this, where all we ask of you is to ride your bicycle and enjoy the views and let our team manage the rest – then you’ll soon be wondering why you’ve not done this before!

Cost of the ride per person – £999
