Dieppe Raid Cycling
Organised annually since 1972
Entry Details for 29th June - 1st July 2019
ENTRY TO EVENT (£6 per person)
The entry information will be published once group travel details have been finalised, generally some time in December.
Group travel details between Newhaven and Dieppe will become available once details have been agreed. It is unlikely that
these will be available until December 2019. Group travel applies to riders travelling by bike. If you opt to take your
car or travel on another route, you are welcome to do so.
Alternative suitable ferry crossings include Portsmouth - Le Havre (approx. 100km from Dieppe)
from which, subject to ferry timetables, Dieppe can be reached by bicycle as well as car.
Additionally, Dover - Calais (approx. 200km from Dieppe) has an excellent motorway link.
The cost of this crossing compares very favourably with Newhaven - Dieppe for those travelling by car.
Many participants have used both of these crossings regularly with shared costs for a full vehicle.
Ideally you should aim to arrive in Dieppe no later than mid-afternoon on the Saturday as it
will then be possible to get settled before attending the welcome gathering. The awards ceremony usually
finishes by 6.30pm on the Sunday.
Many of the regulars have their favourite Hotels but we have reserved some B&B accommodation at the Hotel Windsor.
To book, make direct contact with the hotel quoting "Weekend Cyclo".

MEAL (£30 per person)
The Windsor Hotel has been booked for a group meal on the Sunday evening after the events. The first people
to reply and pay will be given priority.
Application for the meal will be available on the Entry Form. Thanks to the Sou’westers for volunteering to
oversee this social evening.
This includes a 3-course meal, together with a welcome drink and wine.
WALK (£6 per person)
The walkers will be completing a walk of approx. 15 km. Walkers should wear appropriate footwear -
preferably walking shoes or boots. Take a small backpack as you will be given food and drink at
the start which you must carry. Ensure you have clothing suitable for the conditions.
PLEASE NOTE that walkers using the group ferry tickets will need to book as a cyclist but
may use their ticket to travel as a foot passenger on the day. Foot passengers will need to board via
with other foot passengers rather than with the cyclists who board with other vehicles.
