The revolution starts here. You will gather in the early morning by the Royal Observatory in Greenwich Park for registration before setting off on the 500km experience of a lifetime. All riders will set off as one massive peloton as you begin the first leg of this epic journey together. You will also have the opportunity to test your competitive spirit with a timed hill climb, before boarding the Eurotunnel from Folkestone to Calais.
Total Distance ¦ 126.9km
Total Climb ¦ 1177m
After breakfast, it’s back on the bikes for the next stage of the challenge. Heading through the historic Pas de Calais and Somme regions, you will take on the hills (yes there are some) of Northern France. You will also be supported throughout the day by our motorcycle outriders who ensure you are able to proceed without having to stop for traffic or red lights!
Total Distance ¦ 135.1km
Total Climb ¦ 1143m
This is a slightly shorter day in overall distance but still with some challenging hills to contend with. You will experience another time trial section and a timed hill climb to continue to test your competitive nature and riding ability. The day will finish with a reception in Beauvais, before heading to your hotels for the night.
Total Distance ¦ 115km
Total Climb ¦ 617m
The final exhilarating day! You’ll set off in your speed groups for one final timed hill climb before the whole of Team Revolution ride as one huge peloton into Paris. Together, you’ll arrive under rolling road closures riding up the cobbles to the Arc de Triomphe and then onto the finish in the Eiffel Tower's shadow.
After a well-earned drink at the finish area, you'll be transferred to a luxury hotel in Paris to get ready for a champagne reception and celebration party! Enjoy fine food, wine, videos, speeches and reflect on your amazing 500km journey.
Total Distance ¦ 100.57km
Total Climb ¦ 830m
You will then return to London via Eurostar (you have a choice of two train times), still glowing from the experiences of the previous four days and revelling in your achievement. Your bike will be safely returned to the UK via road and will be ready for collection in London when you arrive.
