From under the shadow of York Minster to the looming presence of the Eiffel Tower this 5 days of cycling will be an unforgettable experience.
Setting out from under the beautiful south facade of York Minister cyclists will experience the gentle undulations and stunning scenery of the Yorkshire Wolds before an overnight ferry to the historic Belgium city of Bruges. From here we hit the flatlands of northern France, experiencing some of the iconic climbs of the Tour of Flanders as well as having a go on the bone crunching cobbles of the Paris-Roubaix cycle race, one of the toughest in the world.
Other highlights will include the Great War cemeteries of the Pas de Calais region and shaded forests of the national parks north of Paris, before we make our final approach to the French capital, riding up the legendary Champs Elysees before finishing in front of the Eiffel Tower.
We plan to have a maximum of 15 riders per trip. This will allow us to keep a close control on the group and mean that everyone will get to know each other much better. Each ride will be led by a number of experienced ride leaders and will feature mechanical and logistical support.

FEEDBACK FROM MAY AND JUNE 2017
"Thanks very much for a fabulous week. It far exceeded our expectations and was both a challenge and a great week’s holiday. We couldn’t fault the organisation and the guidance during the ride was excellent. We’d certainly be up for any future routes you do."
"Firstly I must simply say ‘thank you’. I so enjoyed the trip, very much a treasured experience thanks due to all your hard work. From the overall experience down to the smallest details, all was obviously planned with great care and success."
“Craig, Phil, that was a fabulous ride, thank you. Your forethought and ability to let us all just get on with enjoying the cycling, while you sorted everything that is normally a hassle on holiday, was excellent.”
“As I said in my thank you text to you both yesterday, we all thought you were brilliant, on both the macro & micro level and The Committee will be pleased to give you glowing references when appropriate.”
“Great trip and great organisation, and particularly good for me not to have to put up with them whinging about rooms, breakfast, etc etc.” Tim Wilson
