After finishing in Nice in 2014 and 2015, and in Paris last year, it’s time to turn the tables and finish in good old Blighty! The Amsterdam to London ride takes us into 4 countries in 3 days as we make our way through Holland, Belgium and France before hopping over the Channel and finishing at Tower Bridge, London.
With minimal elevation gain, this promises to be a fast, flat, three days in the saddle!

Itinerary (subject to change)
Wednesday 21st June
Cyclists travel out to Amsterdam, to be met by our pie crew on arrival at the hotel. Dinner at your leisure.
Thursday 22nd June – Amsterdam to Renesse
Breakfast will be provided at the hotel, before a welcome speech and briefing. We will then split off into our guided groups and make our way out of the city, heading south-west along the canals and towards the coast.
With just 200m in elevation gain, today is a great introduction to the ride. Dinner and hotel accommodation will be provided in Renesse, with its endless beach and beautiful views.
Friday 23rd June – Renesse to Dunkirk
At over 170km, this is the longest day of the trip by far. Thankfully, there is once again minimal elevation gain (230m), meaning the miles will fly past!
Don’t forget your passport as we pass through Belgium and into France – arriving to a well-earned meal and comfy bed!
Saturday 24th June – Dover to London
The final, and arguably toughest, day is saved ’til last. A short ferry ride across the Channel brings us into Dover and back on home turf!
We spend the day riding through Kent, before making our final approach into London. Friends and family are welcome to join in the finish line celebrations in front of Tower Bridge, before a fantastic celebration meal in the evening.
Sunday 25th June
Check-out and travel home at your leisure.
