This is the ‘ultimate ride experience’ because it’s fully supported.
There is an extensive support crew accompanying you all the way to Paris.
On day one you have the protection of motorcycle escorts for the journey to Folkestone. Once in France, our motorcycle outriders will organise the rolling-road closures so you can ride safely without stopping for traffic lights, junctions or roundabouts.
Mechanics will accompany us each day and do essential repairs on your bike at rest stops and in the back of their lorry while on the move. They bring a large stock of spare parts – the costs of these is extra but their labour is free.
Qualified masseurs will be available at all lunch and rest stops in France for free massage therapy to help with aching muscles and injuries.
Ride Captains are there to motivate and mentor cyclists all the way to Paris. They are the eyes and ears on the road; they will advise riders on directions, moving up or down into different speed groups when necessary, peloton etiquette and food/drinks breaks. More importantly Ride Captains keep the riders in a tight group, closing the gaps and giving a helping hand when needed.
Challenge event specialists, Discover Adventure will be organising our ride. Our ride will be led by an experienced Discover Adventure leader, who is chosen for their knowledge, friendliness and approachability, sense of humour and ability to safely and effectively deal with any situation that arises. They are also trained in expedition first-aid. You are in very safe hands with a Discover Adventure leader.
The Discover Adventure team will be looking after every aspect of your trip whether that’s transporting your luggage, arranging rest stops and lunches, or helping with any mechanical problems. Support vehicles are with the group all of the time, and carry all luggage and supplies.
Support crew were spot on, we felt well looked after.”2016 Rider
