BEYOND FRENCH REVOLUTION SPORTIVE

Its back for 2021 albeit in a slightly different format,

Escaping Britain’s shores if only just for a day is as close most of us will ever get to feel like part of Le tour, Built on the foundations of France’s celebrated love of cycling, the Beyond French Revolution is a teasing taster of what life is like riding on the other side of the English Channel.

This European trip takes the sting out of independently planning a cycling trip abroad, as we will take care of everything on this ride to ensure you enjoy your day and get the most out of the fast-paced sportive setting.

The routes are fully signed, with GPX and GPS downloads available, also with aid stations and on course support (Safety and Mechanical Support) you ride, we will help you finish.

Starting and finishing in Calais at Calais football club.

Strictly limited to 500 riders come join us for a smile that will last for weeks. #iridebeyond
