Ipswich to Amsterdam Bike Ride – Friday 1 September to Sunday 3rd September 2017

(via Colchester General Hospital)

Cycling from Ipswich to Amsterdam– the bike capital of the world – is a classic European cycle experience and a wonderful challenge to achieve in only two days. Your final stop on this side of the channel is at Colchester General Hospital before the last leg to catch the ferry at Harwich.

Passing through the picturesque countryside of rural England, we cross the Channel and continue across the flat landscape of Dutch Zeeland. The sight of Amsterdam with its network of canals, cobbled streets and wonderful architecture will evoke a real sense of excitement. We celebrate our achievement before heading home by train. Registration fee £150, Minimum sponsorship £1,350
