LONDON-PARIS 2017

The LONDON-PARIS is recognised as one of the world's most exciting international cycling events open to the public and is the closest an amateur rider can get to the Tour de France experience. We will roll into Paris the day ahead off the the Tour de France finish - arriving literally hours ahead of the pros. Riders are welcome to stay on for Tour de France VIP finish line hospitality packages, or watch the pros from the side of the road.

The 3 stage event is distinguished by having motorbike outriders, rolling road closures in France and professional logistical back up along the 520km route, from London 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. You don't have to be a pro … but for four days you will feel like a pro!

The 400 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 seeded groups range from

  • "Race" level where riders are contesting for a jersey or category awards.
  • "Ride" level where riders wish the full pro experience with less of an emphasis on racing.
  • "Social" level where riders are new to riding long distances and multi day events. The focus is on finishing the distance and learning.

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.
