London to Nice Cycle (Sep 2014)
Sep 03 2014
Sep 18 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 through rolling fields of wheat and sunflowers, and the famous vineyards around Chablis. The landscape is dotted with small medieval towns and sleepy villages, and the rolling hills provide the perfect preparation for the hair-pin bends of the Col de la Faucille (1323m) – a climb in the Jura mountains that has featured many times in the Tour de France. A wonderful descent takes us into Switzerland and down to beautiful lakeside Geneva. Another rest day sees participants raring to go! Participants set off through the Alps to Provence, riding through beautiful scenery of towering mountain peaks, spectacular limestone cliffs and gorges, dense forests and lavender fields. With long, challenging days in the saddle, the magnificence of the landscapes motivates you to keep pedalling! The unforgettable ride ends with a fabulous descent from the hills through the Gorge du Loup to Nice and the beach, where participants have time to relax and appreciate our huge achievement.
