French Revolution Sportive

Dover, Kent

Organiser's Description

Escaping Britain’s shores if only just for a day is enough to have made this event a sell-out each time it has been held. This European trip takes the sting out of independently planning cycling abroad, as we’ll take care of everything on this ride to ensure you enjoy your day and get the most out of the fast-paced sportive setting. From meeting in Dover, to getting a group escort onto the boat, to guiding you around the picturesque, quaint and signposted wilderness of northern France, to getting you back again – all is included as part of the package.

Upon arrival in Calais, you’ll head out along cliff-top coast roads that test the legs straight away. Before long, up turns to down, and you’ll be employing your best descending technique to drop into Escalles. You will ride through pretty and sleepy French villages, along back roads that connect these communes, littered with grape fields and small farms – but best of all, nearly no cars. And after the final climb back to Calais, you'll have a perfectly flat 7 mile run to the finish at the Calais ferry port. A finisher's medal will be given to you before you board the next ferry back to Dover with your sense of adventure and exploring spirit fulfilled. 60 mile and 75 mileo ptions.
