EVENT DETAILS Cycling from London to Paris is by far one of the best of bike rides in Europe, so why not join us for a truly inspirational experience. For those who choose; this is a fantastic way to raise funds for the charity of your choice.Starting in London, covering just over 300 miles, this 4 day route takes us through some glorious undulating countryside on route to the ferry from Dover to Calais. Once ‘French side’, we cycle along quiet country lanes, through traditional market towns with views of the rolling green hills of Northern France. Get ready for a fantastic ride – the tarmac in France is superb, and cycling is the nation’s favourite sport, so don’t be surprised if the locals cheer you on!Whether you are a regular cyclist or simply a novice, as long as you are willing to train, then this event is perfect for you as Chapeau Events cater for all levels of ability.The pièce de résistance is ultimately the spectacular view of the 324 metre Eiffel Tower, marking the rides overwhelming finish and certainly evoking a huge sense of achievement, not to mention those unforgettable memories. The days in the saddle are long but upon reaching Paris and celebrating our achievements in this fabulous capital, the saddle soreness soon wears off! Itinerary Day 1 – London to CalaisApproximate cycling distance 138km (86 miles) Your challenge begins, after registration, with an early start from our hotel, as you head out through the outskirts of London on to the quieter roads and the stunning villages, taking in the striking countryside of rural Kent. It’s a long cycling day through some tree lined lanes but upon reaching the port of Dover and the famous white cliffs you will feel great with what you have achieved.We then board the ferry to Calais where you will relax and have something to eat. Once disembarked, we have a short ride to our hotel, your base for the evening for some well-earned rest! Day 2 – Calais to ArrasApproximate cycling distance 135km (84 miles) After a hearty breakfast we head out of Calais remembering to ride on the right hand side of the road!As we take on the smooth, relatively flat, roads we next come across a few undulations as we pedal our way through the stunning French countryside and rolling landscapes of Northern France. After a delicious Chapeau lunch we take on a few more undulations finishing with a beautiful gentle decent into the splendid medieval town of Arras, famous for its two striking squares, made by many houses dating from the 17th and 18th centuries. This is where we find our hotel for the evening. Day 3 – Arras to CompiegneApproximate cycling distance 126km (78 miles) Our route this morning heads south through the region of the Somme, which is perhaps most famous for its battles but the name is also a Celtic word meaning tranquility…totally summing up the feeling of the day as we cycle through this superb place. You will see the battlefields of WW1, many war memorials and cemeteries as we cycle along the tree lined country lanes and stunning meadows, before reaching our next hotel stop in Compiegne. Since 1968, this town has been the starting place of the “Paris-Roubaix”, the, most famous cycling race in France, after the Tour de France. Day 4 – Compiegne to ParisApproximate cycling distance 105km (65 miles) We leave the hotel on our final day of cycling, riding through the exquisite forest that surrounds Compiegne. It was here that the 1918 Armistice was signed and still resides in a small museum.We continue on our way riding through quiet quaint villages before reaching the outskirts of Paris where we will start to spot familiar sights and infamous landmarks of the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe. As we cycle through the sometimes crowded Parisian streets, with car horns sounding our arrival, we pedal up the Champs Elysees and on to our grand finish at the Eiffel Tower…a truly fitting end to a challenging journey! Day 5 – Departure Day After a leisurely breakfast, the event comes to an end.

All the hotels we choose are excellent with en-suite facilities, offering exceptional value for money; standards however may vary between the hotels. The price of this trip is based on two people sharing a room. If you are travelling on your own don’t worry, we will pair you up with somebody in a similar position. You can also opt for a single room, but this will incur a supplementary charge. What food is included and does it cater for all diets?Breakfast, lunch, and evening meal will be provided as part of the event package, starting with lunch on day 1 and finishing with breakfast on day 5. Evening meals and breakfasts will be provided at the hotels, apart from the evening of day 1 where due to timings and logistics this will be taken on the ferry.

In addition, we will provide refreshments at each cycle checkpoint of which there will be 2 each day, in addition to lunch of course and consisting of water, juices and high-energy snacks – 1 in the morning and 1 in the afternoon. Chapeau can cater for all special dietary requirements provided you let us know well in advance of the trip. What’s unique about Chapeau…why should I choose you?Our events are tailored to you…our team have physically driven and assessed every mile of the route to ensure the safest and best possible route for your challenge, so rest assured you are in the safest hands. All our routes are specifically tailored with you in mind. How fit do I need to be?Chapeau events attract people of all levels of experience and fitness, all ages and backgrounds. We expect all participants to train hard in advance to achieve this challenge, but we respect everyone’s limits. You will be in the saddle for upward of 70 miles a day for 4 consecutive days, so you should ensure, as a minimum that you are comfortable riding a 60-70 mile day and have achieved this regularly before you leave for the trip. The profile on some days can be hilly, so you should include some hilly rides in your training. We design our challenges so that everyone can go at their own pace; this is not a race. Who will be there to support me during the event?Your trip will be led by experienced Chapeau Events crew. Our crew are selected for their experience in cycling events around the world, their friendliness and approach-ability, sense of humour and ability to safely and effectively deal with any situation that arises. Our crew leaders are also trained in expedition first-aid. You are in very safe hands with the Chapeau Events crew.The number of crew and support vehicles looking after you will depend on the final size of your group, but the team will be looking after every aspect of your trip whether that’s transporting your luggage, ensuring your route is well-marked, sorting out any mechanical problems or giving you a lift in our back vehicle – our “Love bus”. At Chapeau Events we pride ourselves on our high crew: cyclist ratio and believe it leads to greater trip enjoyment as well as excellent trip safety. Will I be safe?Your safety, and that of the rest of the group, is our highest priority. Our trips are designed and planned with safety in mind. Your crew will be equipped with radios and emergency mobile phones, first-aid kits and other safety apparatus where necessary. They always have access to our 24-hour emergency back-up in the UK. Our leaders are responsible for safety on the trip, and will make any changes to the itinerary they deem necessary should local conditions dictate. Pre-trip administration – such as compulsory medical questionnaires and travel insurance – is all done with your safety in mind. What happens to my luggage each day?Our support vehicles are with the group all of the time. All luggage and spares will be carried in them as we travel to each destination. On reaching our hotels, at the end of each day, you will hand over your bike for safe overnight keeping and collect your luggage. Each morning, you will hand over your luggage and collect your bike. Obviously space is limited and hard-sided luggage is not suitable, so it is essential that your kit is packed in a soft sailing bag, rucksack or expedition kit-bag. What insurance will I require?It is a requirement of entry that you have adequate insurance to cover your participation on the event. We will require a copy of valid insurance before travel. We also recommend that you apply for a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), as the NHS will cover most medical care when traveling in Europe. You can apply for an EHIC at your local post office. Is travel, to start of route in London and from end of route in Paris, included?No…you are responsible for your own travel arrangements to the start of the event in London and return travel from Paris back to UK. Chapeau will, however ensure your bike is safely transport to and from the event if required, allowing you the freedom for free time in either fabulous capitals. Perhaps a relaxing spa day in London before you embark on your adventure or exploring the wonderful sights Paris has to offer, the choice is yours.Chapeau events will of course provide advice on best travel options and further accommodation requirements should you require. Will I receive further information?Yes…a full detailed information pack will be issued following signed registration.

We will look at ways in which artists and graphic novelists have used the visual diary as a place in which to explore their inner and outer worlds. Working on location in sketchbook/diaries, we will go to a series of different Brighton locations accessible by public transport or on foot, such as the South Downs, the beach and the Palace Pier, to garner inspiration for your work, which will then be further developed in the studio. Using drawing, writing and mixed media, you will be guided by experienced artist/educator Ottilie through tasks towards developing a visual language, with which to explore your own inner and outer worlds, bringing them together into a unique sketchbook/diary. Basic drawing materials including sketchbooks will be provided.  A reasonable level of fitness and physical health is required for this course.  Costs: £125Days:  10 ThursdaysTimes: 10am - 12pm, except 11th and 25th May which will be 10am-1pmSpring Dates: 4th May - 6th July (no class 1st June) - please note revised start dare.Room: RedMaximum: 10 Ottilie Hainsworth graduated from Glasgow School of Art and gained an MA RCA in illustration in 1994.

They are suitable for anyone (from beginners upwards unless otherwise stated) who wants to learn new skills from professional artists and would like to meet likeminded people in a supportive and creative environment. We normally provide all the basic materials unless stated in the course descriptions. You need to register in advance as some popular courses fill up very quickly. All courses are aimed at adults (over 18) unless otherwise stated. Course fees are kept as low as possible to encourage everyone to participate in the arts, including those on low incomes but not eligible for benefits, such as many artists. Therefore we do not offer separate concessionary rates for members of the public. We are unable to offer discounted rates for other reasons, for instance if you are unable to attend all the sessions, unless the course has already started and has unfilled spaces.
