Why Book This Trip?

Sportive Breaks are proud to partner with the Hotchillee team to offer London-Paris Gravel – an amazing fully supported gravel cycling tour from the Thames in London to the Seine in Paris, riding almost entirely off-road and finishing at the foot of the iconic Eiffel Tower. The ride is supported by a dedicated team of Ride Captains, mechanics, sports therapists and a logistics crew with over 20 years of experience. With three days of stunning off-road riding, you get to enjoy the scenery, ride with a group of like-minded cyclists and celebrate in Paris at the end.

The route, part of which was designed by Sofiane Sehili the ultra-endurance racer and adventure cyclist, starts at Hampton Court and heads south along the Downs Link towards Newhaven and then on arrival in France from Dieppe to Paris via Vernon. Three nights of accommodation in 3* and 4* hotels, three days of gravel riding and return by Eurostar (with separate bike transport) and all the while Hotchillee take care of your luggage and logistics. 

Spread your payments: Our payment plan is an interest-free payment method where you will have the opportunity to spread payment for your booking.

Riding: ride as a group with the Hotchillee Ride Captains or go solo. 376km total distance.

Optional: single upgrades are limited but possible.

Itinerary

Day To Day

Hampton Court to Newhaven – 122km / +400m

Today starts at sunrise from Hampton Court with a ride to the coast. We take the urban gravel of the Thames path south and enjoy a chalky, flinty ride through the English countryside. This is the only day of riding with any time pressure as we need to catch a ferry from Newhaven but we leave early to ensure there’s plenty of time to get there.

Dieppe to Vernon – 140km / +1350m

With a continental breakfast under your belt, today’s Queen Stage covers 140km of rolling French trails taking in picturesque villages and dipping in and out of forests. It’s a long day, finishing along the banks of the Seine, but with no time pressure there’ll be plenty of time to look up and enjoy the views.

Vernon to Paris – 114km / +1100m

You’ll be wondering why today’s stage is shorter than the days before, especially when you roll out along the flat by the side of the Seine River. This is just to ease the legs before the brutal climbs and adrenaline-fuelled descents on the way to Paris. This final stage has been designed by Sofiane Sehili, ultra-endurance racer and adventure cyclist. We believe he has found the best possible off-road route to his native Paris and you’ll see why with a mix of open meadows, single tracks, historic towpaths and rolling leafy woodland – it’s only the last 10km that are on a protected cycle path to the finish line at the Eiffel Tower. Put your feet up and enjoy some well-earned post-ride celebrations in Paris.

After a leisurely breakfast, make your way to the Gare du Nord for your homeward journey on Eurostar, followed by a coach transfer to Imber Court where your bike will be waiting for you to collect.
