EuroVelo 5

Over a thousand years ago, Sigeric the Serious, Archbishop of Canterbury, travelled all the way to Rome to receive his symbols from the Pope. Now you can follow in his footsteps by taking our 3,900km long version of his route, EuroVelo 5. Starting at the glorious Canterbury Cathedral in Kent you cycle to the coast of Dover, home to Britain’s busiest port, biggest castle and most iconic landmark, the legendary White Cliffs. On the other side of the channel you pass through the political nerve centres of the EU and the breath-taking St. Gotthard Pass (alt. 2106 m) on the road to the Eternal City.
