Dieppe Raid 29 - 30 June 2024

The annual Tour des Trois Vallées is a series of touring rides organised by the Cyclo-Club Dieppois based on the fabulous almost traffic free roads and lanes of the countryside in and around Dieppe in Normandy, France, offering various distances (from 30k to 140k) to suit both families and keen club cyclists. A walk is generally offered for non-cyclists.

This international event was started in 1972 by Neville Chanin - a well known cyclist who travelled widely throughout the world by bicycle. It was established in commemoration of the original Dieppe Raid in 1942 where our Canadian Allies suffered such terrible losses. CycleBristolCTC members have been regular attendees. There is also a meal offered in the evening after the rides. 

There are usually several members of CycleBristolCTC that attend; contact Mick Ellis mickellis202@gmail.com for more details or go to www.dieppetour.com.
