    Morning All, Doing a charity ride for The National Autistic Society in June,
    London to Paris via Portsmouth. Has anyone done this route? I've heard that
    there are some nice climbs in northern France.

    I've done it with Action Medical Research 3 times. it's hard but it's a great time! you will make some great friends and it will be a trip to remember.

    tip... get some good padding in your shorts :ohmy:

    and yes, there are some climbs, but you will be fine. can't access the link but i've been 3 different ways. Dunkirk and Calais routes are less hilly but still have some climbs. the other side, Dieppe or St Malo routes, are more hilly but much more interesting and prettier. All routes have climbs on them, but i managed them and i'm a wimp.
