Suggested routes for the London to Paris cycle ride

One of the most important things to decide when planning your London to Paris bike ride is of course what route to take. The great thing is, there are many different route options to choose from.

Thanks to the number of available ways to cross the English channel people can choose to cycle routes such as London to Dover, London to Newhaven or London to Portsmouth where they can pick up ferries over to Calais, Dieppe and Le Havre. These main ferry ports allow foot passengers with bicycles and what’s great is the fares are cheap (Check Ferry Times, Prices & Availability).

Once you are in France there are many routes to choose from to get you into Paris taking you through beautiful countryside and historic towns all, of course, filled with fantastic little cafes and boulangeries.

Here we have pulled together a selection of the most popular routes which have been submitted by other cyclists, varying between those offering cyclists the chance to cover the distance in the shortest time possible to those looking to take their time and enjoy the sites along the way.
