The London-Paris is recognised as one of the world's most exciting cycling events open to the public and is the closest the amateur rider can get to the Tour de France experience.
The event is distinguished by having motorbike outriders, rolling road closures in France and professional logistical back up along the 520km route, from Hampton Court to the Eiffel Tower. The rolling road closures into the centre of Paris on a Saturday afternoon is only experienced by riders of the Tour de France! The peloton, with its 50 motorbike outriders, rolls along the famous Parisian streets to an emotional finish.
The 450 cyclists, riding in seeded speed groups, are supported by HotChillee's 260-strong crew which includes mechanics, marshals, outriders sports therapists and our experienced Ride Captains.
The Daily Telegraph listed The London-Paris as one of the world's top 25 mass participation events, alongside the New York and London marathons. It also named The London-Paris as one of the top 10 adventure events for women and gave us a top 10 place in international endurance events. Eurosport TV coverage was very well received and we expect to provide more TV coverage for 2014.
The London-Paris attracts sportivers, amateurs, leading cyclists, sporting greats and the best from the business world. Previous riders included:
