Epic Paris-to-St Petersburg Cycling Tour Announced

You'll need to be a very fit and accomplished cyclist to want to attempt the new Paris-to-St. Petersburg "Napoleon" Cycling Tour.

Ride & Seek Adventures, the adventure travel company known for its Hannibal Expedition cycling tour from Barcelona to Rome, has announced an even more audacious excursion taking riders on a 36-day bike tour from Paris to St Petersburg.

The “Napoleon Epic Adventure” will cross seven countries following in the footsteps of Napoleon’s Grande Armée and cover over 3,700km. 

It begins in Paris with a spin down the Champs-Élysées, followed by aperitifs under the shadow of the Arc de Triomphe before departing for Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and Russia 

The scenery will include rolling vineyards, forests, medieval villages, and historic cities. The tour is slated for July 6-August 10, 2019 and prices start from $15,850 USD. 

There is an option to ride 8-day or 15-day stages of the tour starting at $3,560 USD. 

“Our guests will experience total immersion into the landscape, history and culture as we ride this inspirational trail on the roads less traveled,” said Ride & Seek Founder, Dylan Reynolds. “We will sample the culinary delights and embrace the abundant cultural and historical elements as we meander our way across Europe.”

Guests will ride across the Champagne region of France into southern Germany. The route then heads through UNESCO-protected medieval villages in Poland to the North Sea. From here, it moves east via the great lakes of Poland and the Baltics. Guests will eventually arrive in St Petersburg, a city Napoleon never took, but a "must see" on a Russian odyssey.

“We will visit expert Champagne makers, eat wonderful regional cuisine, explore UNESCO recognized sites, and ride through beautiful forests, remote territory and bustling cities, all in the footsteps of Napoleon,” said Reynolds.
