Are you looking for a challenge to make 2024 a year you’ll never forget? If so, this event is a must for you!

This epic ride really will be your tale of these two historic cities. From London to Paris, through quintessentially English countryside and the cycling heartlands of northern France, you will experience that English and French connection in a way that only cycling allows. What's more, we will be with you every pedal stroke of the way, to help you achieve this extraordinary challenge.

The Challenge

Day One

Day one of your adventure will see you and your co-riders leave London around 10:00 am and cycle 60 miles through the stunning countryside of southern England to Newhaven. This includes testing climbs and swooping descents through the scenery and villages of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the South Downs National Park. You will arrive in Newhaven at approximately 3 pm to board the ferry to Dieppe, a chance to refuel with dinner on board. We arrive in Dieppe late evening with a hotel stay in the historic French port.

Day Two

After getting a good night's sleep and a hearty breakfast we head off into the French countryside towards Paris on our epic 110 mile ride. Our journey will take us through Normandy, following quiet roads and lanes, past chateaus and quintessential French towns and hamlets. On approaching the hustle and bustle of Paris, we will take you down quiet back streets to reach our iconic destination: the Eiffel Tower. There will be time to soak up the Parisian vibe, to take photos and to revel in your enormous sense of achievement. We will then book into our hotel, enjoying an evening meal, a chance to share stories and take some well-earned rest!

Day Three

Monday morning starts with a full continental breakfast, then a morning to explore Paris at your leisure, before catching the Eurostar and traveling back to London to be reunited with your bike, which we will have transported back for you.

London To Paris in three days was a great experiance. Tought few days but well worth it. Thanks again support crew who helped make this challenge ! I'll be back for more.

I thought the Slepe Morning Sportive was very well organised. The route marking left no doubt about where to go and it was a decent route and kept us off main roads most of the time. The food stop was excellent, the checking in was easy and the briefing for the start was magnificent. Good job all round!
