There are 2 courses to choose from, Epic 75 miles or Standard 59 miles. Routes will explore the amazing North Coast and National Park. Offering superb traffic free cycling on an extremely well signposted course.


The route starts and finishes with a perfectly flat 7 miles as you head along the coast road to Sangatte. Then the course becomes a little hillier as you pass the stunning Mont d'Hubert & Cap Blanc Nez, steeped in History from WWII. With forts and bombing creators clearly visible on the cliff tops. As you pass over the Cliff top at Mont d'Hubert you will have unspoiled views of the English channel and the White cliffs of Dover.


From here the route heads in land to the enchanting and breath taking national park 'Foret Domaniate de Guines'. Which will offer the Epic riders a quality climb up Mont d'Licques, The route will join up again and head west back to the Spectacular coast line. Now heading north back towards Calais you will pass Mont Duez, Mont de la Louve and pass Wissant before the last climb of the day at Mont d'Hubert.


You will then have a perfectly flat 7 miles run into the Finish which will be at Calais Ferry port itself.


A finishers' medal, a quality goody bag, will be given to you before you board the next ferry back to Dover with your sense of adventure and exploring spirit fulfilled.. Food and showers will be available on the Ferry.
