Race the summer solstice on this epic gravel adventure through druid Britain. Starting at dawn from the historic hilltop fort of Old Sarum, the route will pass the iconic landmark of Stonehenge as you embark on this monumental adventure.

“The bomb for Tour de France junkies born without the right genes.” Editor, Ride Magazine, SAThe LONDON-PARIS is an official Tour de France event. Cycle fully supported on closed roads arriving the day before the Tour de France finish. Or take the path less travelled, and ride to Paris off road on our new gravel adventure.

And the icing on the cake … you can then watch the peloton charge around the iconic cobbles with an open bar and front row seating.  00 Wed 19

Hello from Mark Chambers, the creator, and manager of the Firstly, thank you so much for making the 'Gravel bike' community that counts in the UK!   As you may have realised, this is a voluntary run community based on non-profit and freedom.

RIDE OVERVIEW One of the best gravel loops in England taking in two iconic sections - the Pennine Way and the ancient Salter Fell Road. This is a very wild ride with parts a long way from a paved road. The views throughout are spectacular as we take in the Forest of Bowland & Yorkshire Dales. A northern classic.DISTANCE: 103KM | ELEVATION: 2126M RIDE DIFFICULTY 4.5/5 TECHNICAL DIFFICULTY 4/5 PERCENTAGE OF ROUTE OFF ROAD 50%Bike & Tyre Choice: The route is 50% on quiet lanes and 50% on more technical gravel & off road tracks. It is designed for gravel bikes, we suggest 40mm or wider tyres. A mountain bike will be fine on the off road sections but obviously slower on the 50km of tarmac. Road bikes are not suitable.
