The Big Issue Foundation’s London to Amsterdam cycling challenge is back in 2016, following the success of last year’s ride! 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 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!

Fundraising is all part of the challenge, and when you register we ask you to pledge to raise £1,120. By taking part you will be helping us to support vendors like Dean, who took part in last year’s challenge, on their journeys away from homelessness.

Why not take a look at the photo galleries from last year to see just how much fun the group had, and think about putting yourself in the pictures this year!? We will be holding an information evening in the New Year and you can register your interest in attending here.

If you would like to take on an even greater challenge, please take a look at our alternative cycle challenges: London to Paris 24 and Ride London.
