Cyclists looking for a long distance ride, where they are afforded the same support and back up as the Tour de France, need look no further.
Participants ride through some of the finest cycling terrain in England and France - from sweeping wooded countryside and quaint hamlets to quiet rural lanes and city streets closed just for the event. It is challenging, but the Legion's specialist team of mechanics, sports physios and motorcycle outriders are there to support riders throughout the journey.
Cyclists can bask in star treatment as they ride through the streets of Paris closed especially for the event - one of a select few bike rides other than the Tour de France offered this special privilege. Yes, riders need to put in the training to make the most of this amazing event, but the Legion helps them every step of the way - from the day they sign up to the end of their exciting adventure.
