London to Paris Ride

A splendid three days in the saddle, with seven Clubmen battling navigational challenges in Sussex, closed cycleways in the suburbs of Paris, and the odd shower and hill.
Jan has produced a great video of the ride.
Our WAGs served us well, with daring driving skills in France and endless supplies for tired cyclists.

Off we go!
A quick stop at the Cutty Sark to be cheered on by our Supporter's Club

Who really wanted a bath and a beer after the first day's ride anyway? A full exploration of Lewes before we found the right lane to Newhaven!

We need these in the UK! Excellent cycle ways south of Dieppe
