Join us for our first ever London to Amsterdam cycling challenge!  Following 8 successful London to Paris rides we are really excited to be hosting a brand new challenge! Be one of our team as we cycle 150 miles in two days to reach the beautiful city of Amsterdam, where we will be sure to celebrate our arrival!

Download the trip notes now to find out more about the ride, and how to prepare for it. The challenge will be a fast route for experienced cyclist as we will be cycling over flat terrain, and once the other side of the channel, will be on many traffic free routes. This also makes it a fantastic trip for less experienced cyclist too as the only thing you have to think about it keeping those wheels turning, and all the hard-working vendors your fundraising will help!

There will be professional cycling guides who will accompany you in groups of 10 along the route. These groups will be organised by ability, so you can be confident that you will be amongst people who cycle at  a similar speed!

Riding with you will be former Big Issue vendor Dean, and Andre a current Big Issue vendor, so the three day trip will be sure to be filled with insights and inspiration.

Fundraising is all part of the challenge, and when you register we ask you to pledge to raise £1,100. By taking part you will be helping us to support vendors like Dean, and Andre on their journeys out of homelessness.

Why not take a look at the photo galleries from previous London to Paris rides to see just how much fun the groups have, and think about putting yourself in the pictures this year!?

If you decide that this ride isn’t the right one for you, then please do consider supporting our vendors as they rise to the challenge. Please visit Dean’s fundraising page or Andre’s fundraising page to show your support.   Thank you.
