Why we love this tour

"Dickens wrote of the Tale of Two Cities, but I'm not sure he cycled between them. Experience the green countryside and picturesque villages along the 'Voie Verte' route in France before crossing the Channel. The last leg takes you to Big Ben to finish this iconic route!"

Historic French towns, stunning chateaux & English villages and pubs

Cross the English Channel between Dieppe and England’s chalk cliffs

Cycle through rural landscapes between two iconic capitals

Designated cycle tracks beside riverbanks and forests on rural lanes

Multi-Country, Solo

Cycle between two of the world's most iconic cities, setting out from Paris to London and touring through rolling countryside scattered with castles, cathedrals and picture postcard villages. Pedal at your own pace along a network of linked cycle paths, crossing the English Channel by ferry between Britain’s white chalk cliffs and the historic French resort of Dieppe. A perfect blend of city sights and rural charms, see the Arc de Triomphe and Houses of Parliament, and tour through blue-tinged estuaries and shady forests.

Take a break whenever it suits, visiting pubs in quintessential English villages or relaxing on the banks of the River Seine – a favourite painting spot of the artist Monet. The stately homes of Royal Tunbridge Wells are an appealing place to stop in England, and take your pick of stone castles and grand chateaux to visit in France.
