As the sun is setting, you will climb over the South Downs and enjoy a long descent past Lewes and into Newhaven where the ferry awaits.

Newhaven to Dieppe, Overnight Ferry Crossing: 4 hours

After a hearty refuel at our feed stop in Newhaven and the chance to put on more layers from your kit bags, you will board the ferry and find somewhere to rest your head for a few hours.

Cycling through the night along quiet roads in France is an experience you will never forget. As the first rays of dawn peak over the horizon, the sunrise will illuminate everything and bring a new day in which you will complete this epic challenge. You will experience the world waking up around you whilst you cruise through Northern France on route to Paris.
