A group of cyclists riding on the road as part of the London to Nice Cycle.

London to Nice Cycle

Take on the ultimate ride for #TeamRefuge in the London to Nice Cycle!

Setting off from London, the route passes through picturesque Kent countryside, crosses the Channel and continues through to Northern France, to Paris and the iconic landmark of the Eiffel Tower. Head through rolling fields of wheat and sunflowers, and the famous vineyards around Chablis. The landscape is dotted with small medieval towns and sleepy villages, and the rolling hills provide the perfect preparation for the hair-pin bends of the Col de la Faucille (1,323m) – a climb in the Jura Mountains that has featured many times in the Tour de France.

Enjoy a wonderful descent into Switzerland and down to beautiful lakeside Geneva. Cycle through the Alps to Provence, riding through beautiful scenery of towering mountain peaks, spectacular limestone cliffs and gorges, dense forests and lavender fields. Our unforgettable ride ends with a fabulous descent from the hills through the Gorge du Loup to Nice and the beach, where we have time to relax and appreciate our huge achievement.
