London to Calais

Our challenge begins bright and early from Crystal Palace heading south towards the coast. Our route winds through the beautiful Kent countryside before we reach the famous white cliffs of Dover. From here we catch the ferry to Calais for our first overnight stop. Approx. 95 miles cycling


Calais to Bruges

After a hearty French breakfast we head out for a slightly easier day on two wheels! The relatively flat route follows the coast through the Belgian border along tree-lined country lanes and picturesque canals before turning inland toward our evening’s accommodation in beautiful Bruges – this fairy-tale town is filled with pretty cobbled streets and medieval buildings, a picture-perfect end to day two! Approx. 80 miles cycling


Bruges to Breda

Today we will be tackling our longest ride of the trip so will begin with an early start! After a couple of hours we cross from Belgium into Holland and then along the coastal road before taking a welcome break in the form of a 20 minute inland ferry ride! From here we head east towards our journey’s end in the historic city of Breda. Approx. 95 miles cycling


Breda to Amsterdam

We have a long ride ahead for our last day in the saddle but we will be taking on a flatter route passing the canals, blossoming tulips and windmills synonymous with the Netherlands, which lead us towards the bright lights of Amsterdam where cycling is the way of life! This wonderful city is a hub of art, history, hidden gems and stunning sites – what a finish line! Approx. 90 miles cycling


Amsterdam to London

Today you are free to explore the wonders of Amsterdam, with your chance to take in the culture and enjoy all the city has to offer, be it taking in a museum or enjoying a well-earned drink in the sun! You will then catch a coach to Brussels before transferring to the Eurostar to continue to London. Due to the nature of the challenge, this complex itinerary is subject to change.
