The two-day Ch’Ti Bike Tour, the fourth edition of which takes place over the weekend of 23 and 24 August 2008, now has an English language website to make life easier for UK residents
interested in making the 80km journey from Calais to the start near Armentieres.
The weekend of cycling comprises the Laurent Desbiens sportive on the Saturday and Route des Monts on the Sunday and traverses the land of the Ch’Ti, a slang term for the residents of this part of northern France. The two routes offer a variety of terrain from flattish roads to the hills around Mont Cassel, with the Laurent Desbiens a fast, timed ride and the Route des Monts a gentler randonnee over the same area the following day.
