What links London to Amsterdam…you do! On your bicycle that is. Join Albion in the Community on this short, yet fantastic cycling challenge which sees us cover 130 miles in just 2 days. Cycling across beautiful Essex countryside and pedalling through sleepy coastal Dutch lanes will give us a great European cycling experience. Upon reaching our finish in Amsterdam, we celebrate our achievements and enjoy a little ‘Dutch courage’…albeit a little late!
Day 1 – London to Harwich – Ferry to Holland – We meet early morning at the AMEX Stadium and take the transfer to our start point of Brentwood. Upon arrival, we grab our bikes and hold an event briefing. It’s not too long before we are cycling through beautiful Essex countryside on roads that undulate and weave through the county. We arrive at the Port of Harwich, where we board our overnight ferry to the Hook of Holland.
Cycling distance – approx. 65 miles
Day 2 – Hook of Holland to Amsterdam – Our ferry docks early in the morning so we hop straight into the saddle – destination today, the Ajax Stadium, Amsterdam! Our route today hugs the coastline and winds its way along typical Dutch cycle lanes. We ride inland towards the capital and the Ajax Stadium which marks our finish line.
Cycling distance – approx. 55 miles
Day 3 – We have a free morning and early afternoon in Amsterdam to do as we wish. In the afternoon, we take the transfer to the airport for flights back to the UK. Upon arrival, we take the transfer back to the AMEX Stadium to be reunited with bicycles.
