Ride 25: Leeds to Paris

03/09/2014 - Leeds to Paris - Multi-Day

Rating: Rate this Event Now

Date: 3 - 8 September 2014

Distance: 395 miles


What better way to kick off your Ride25 adventure than by starting off in 'God's Own County' at the steps of Leeds Town Hall and finishing at the foot of the Eiffel Tower in Paris? This leg is split over five days' cycling and covers 395 miles, with an average of 79 miles per day.  As with all Ride25 tours, you will be supported along the way and everything will be taken care of so all you need to do is soak up the sights and enjoy the ride.


Day 1 (Leeds to Loughborough)

After bidding a fond farewell to Leeds we will meander through the beautiful Yorkshire countryside before making our way into the Heart of England and spending the first night in Loughborough.

Day 2 (Loughborough to Marlow)

After an early start and a hearty breakfast we will head south, taking in the varied landscapes of Central England and finishing up in the picturesque town of Marlow.

Day 3 (Marlow to Newhaven)


Ever closer to France, we will complete our final full day on English soil today by taking in the dramatic White Cliffs. We will finish in the vibrant seaside town of Brighton, ready for the channel crossing on day four.

Day 4 (Newhaven to Gournay-en-Bray)

Starting with a bright and early cycle ride to Newhaven, we will then catch the ferry to Dieppe to complete the final two days of our journey on the French side of the channel. We will stay the night in the pretty town of Gournay-en-Bray.

Day 5 (Gournay-en-Bray to Paris)


The final day of our adventure will see us coursing through scenic French countryside before finishing with a memorable ride along the Seine up to the iconic Eiffel Tour where we will conclude our tour and pose for slightly dishevelled tourist photos!
