  • On a bit of a whim I have decided to cycle from London to Versailles and then turn around and come back again.

    Did the London to Paris part in August last year on a highly inappropriate track bike with a stupid big gear but will have brakes and gears for this one.

    I've booked the 11pm ferry from Newhaven on the 2nd and am hoping to be able to get to Versailles (110ish miles) and back for the 1am ferry back on the Saturday morning.

    Arse/leg soreness will determine whether its a train from Newhaven on Saturday morning or a (slow) cycle home from there.

    At the moment I am doing it solo but if anyone fancies joining me for the whole thing / half of it / even just the ride down to Newhaven then you're more than welcome as long as you can keep up with my blistering speed (that's a joke, I'm very fat and slow)

  • Given what happened I am going to head to Notre Dame rather than Versailles now. No other reason than I'm nosey. Hopefully the extra traffic doesnt put too much of a dent in the average speed to get back in time. Going to stop on the way back out of Paris rather than the way in this time so ill know how many pizza's i have time to eat!

  • A group of us are going to ride from Paris to London at the end of August. The ride will be over 4 days and we have decided on the longer route up to Calais, We are all fairly fit so there shouldnt be a problem with the distances involved. I found this route on Strava using the most popular routes.
    Having investigated it a little the routes looks fine to me, can anyone recommend it or have any other suggestions on other routes or bits to avoid.
