This trip is a fantastic challenge for anyone wanting to do something amazing for a great cause! You don't need to be a fitness fanatic to do this challenge - the majority of people on the trip will be just like you and will not necessarily have done anything like this before.

I Need a Place
Places cost just £125 and we ask that you raise a minimum of £1,600 in sponsorship to help young people with cancer.
If you raise 80% of this 12 weeks before the event (that's £1,280), we'll pay for the cost of your challenge.
Alternatively if you would like to self fund and pay the challenge costs yourself (£800) let us know.
If you choose this option a £125 registration fee be required to secure your place.
No minimum sponsorship target is set we just ask you raise as much a possible to support young people with cancer.

Here's a taste of you itinerary:
Day 1: London to Calais
Our challenge begins bright and early from Crystal Palace heading south on route to the white cliffs of Dover. The ferry takes us across to Calais and our first nights resting place. 95 miles (approx)
Day 2: Calais to Bruges
After a hearty French breakfast we head out for a slightly easier day in the saddle. The relatively flat route follows the coast through the Belgian boarder before turning inland toward our evening’s accommodation in beautiful Bruges. 80 miles (approx)
Day 3: Bruges to Breda
An early start is needed as we take on our longest day, but thanks to the Dutch landscape the route is relatively flat and we wind our way down through yet more beautiful countryside towards Breda. 95 miles (approx)
Day 4: Breda to Amsterdam
Our last day in the saddle, another long one luckily however this section is, for the most part flat. Before we know it we will be pedalling around the outskirts and heading in towards the bright lights of Amsterdam. 90 miles (approx)
