London to Geneva Cycle (Sep 2014)
Sep 03 2014

The organisers say:
Setting off from London, participants pass through picturesque Kent countryside, cross the Channel and continue through the small villages and medieval market towns of Northern France to Paris and the evocative landmark of the Eiffel Tower. After a day to rest, participants head off again, cycling through sunflower fields, quiet woodland and rolling chalk hills dotted with small medieval towns and sleepy villages. The landscape varies from farmland to forests and the famous vineyards around Chablis as we pass through Burgundy en-route to the beautiful Jura Mountains. Participants ride culminates in crossing the mountains, our biggest challenge. The gentle rolling hills that form much of our landscape en-route provide us with the perfect preparation for the hair-pin bends of the Col de la Faucille (1323m), a climb that has featured many times in the Tour de France. Crossing into Switzerland, participants finish with a wonderful descent; after long days in the saddle and a challenging day in the Jura, participants will be very happy to see Geneva and its beautiful lake!
