Are you looking for a challenge to make 2020 a year you’ll never forget, if so this event is a must for you.

The Challenge

We leave London at 4:00pm and cycle around 60 miles through the countryside to Newhaven. We catch the overnight ferry to Dieppe and have a few hours rest before disembarking around 5.00am local time. After getting off the ferry we cycle the remaining 120 miles before arriving in the great capital city of Paris by 5.00pm local time. After photos and celebrations at the Eiffel Tower we book into our three star hotel before enjoying an evening meal and getting some well-earned rest.

After a good night’s sleep and a great breakfast it’s time to take the Eurostar back to London with memories never to be forgotten.

The Background

Want a challenge that will test your metal. Well how about this behemoth challenge. We took the original Long Leg Tour and gave it the supersize treatment. This 24 hour, 180 mile challenge will test even the most hardened of cyclists. Completing this challenge will make 2020 one that won’t be forgotten in a hurry and if you do the pictures in the French capital will bring the memories flooding back.

Additional Information

A non refunable deposit of £100 is required at the time of booking and full payment is due eight weeks before the event. The price of the challenge is based of two people sharing a room, a single room supplement for those that want a private room is £60 per person, a space in a shared cabin on the ferry is £35 per person. These can be added when booking. Everyone is free to ride at their own pace but we re-group at the food stops, this allows us to provide the best support for the whole group. All riders must reach the ferry & food stops by a certain times, if for one reason or another riders are not able to reach theses points in time then they will be required to catch a lift in one of our support vehicle and dropped off further along the route. To complete this challenge you will need to be riding at an average pace of 14mph or faster.

I would just like to say a massive thank you and congratulations to Simon of Long Leg Tours and his team for putting on a very well-organised sportive. Everyone was very helpful and the food and water stations did not disappoint. Roll on next year and many more to come.

Tim Haynes

I thoroughly enjoyed the Slepe Morning Sportive – Simon and his team were first-class and every little detail was taken care of, from the excellent signposting and stewarding to the rather impressive banquet laid on at half-time!

Matt Cann

Great ride, many thanks. Very well organised, signposting was clear and safe, water points were appreciated, home cooked food was delicious, goody bag had loads of useful stuff, great humour, friendly fellow riders, great route in lovely countryside and quiet roads, and it only took me about three days to recover! My son and I loved it.
