Day 1, Fri 29 Apr 2022

London to Canterbury (approx. 76 miles/122km)

After all the preparation, the time has finally come to get pedaling! The journey kicks off in Sheen Common, South London, where you’ll meet the rest of the group, the challenge leader and support team. An introductory briefing will include vital safety advice, and then you’re off! After a short cycle through the outskirts of London, the route passes along country roads then through Rochester before reaching Canterbury, your stop for the night. (L,D)

Day 2, Sat 30 Apr 2022

Canterbury to De Panne (approx. 69 miles/111km)

After an early breakfast you’ll continue on to Dover where you take the ferry to Calais. From here the route heads slightly inland before continuing east towards Belgium.  After crossing the border we mainly follow cycle paths and canals to the coastal town of De Panne.

Having arrived in De Panne during the late afternoon, the group will dine at a local restaurant then retire to your hotel. (B,L,D)

Day 3, Sun 01 May 2022

De Panne to Bruges (approx. 33miles/53km)

Refreshed after a good night’s sleep, it’s time to push on for the final ride to Bruges. 
The route mainly follows cycle paths which are typical of the area and make Belgium so popular for cycling.  As we ride into Bruges the cycle paths turn into cobbled streets before we finish in the main square, one of the highlights of this iconic city. 

There’s time for a quick celebratory drink and the obligatory victory snaps, before heading off to your hotel for the final celebratory dinner together. (B,L,D)

Accommodation: Hotel

Depart Bruges

Now the hard work is over, take the morning to explore Bruges at your leisure or simply lie in and relax after last night’s celebrations. Later it’s time to make your own way to the station, from where you’ll catch the Eurostar back to St Pancras International. [Please see Q&As for information on bike transportation back to the UK.] (B)
