Adventure Details

Day 1

Start time 07:00

London – Calais (76 miles & ↑ 4300 feet) We meet early at Blackheath Common at 07:00 for a trip briefing. After a short cycle through the outskirts of London our route passes along country roads through Rochester and Canterbury before meeting our ferry in Dover. We will arrive at the ferry for a late afternoon crossing to Calais. Dinner can be purchased on the ferry. Once in Calais it is a short cycle to our hotel for a well-earned rest.

Day 2

Calais – Bruges (75 miles & ↑1000 feet) After breakfast, we begin our ride east, passing through the town of Dunkirk, before crossing the border into Belgium. Our route then follows the Belgian coast to our overnight stop, Bruges. Bruges is the capital city of the West Flanders region, the historic city centre of which is a UNESCO Heritage Site.

Day 3

Bruges – Rotterdam (86 miles & ↑1500 feet) Don’t let the mileage put you off today! During the first 25 miles we cycle northeast to Breskens where we take a foot passenger ferry crossing the Western Scheldt estuary to Vlissingen. Once over, our route crosses several similar inlets but this time on bridged roads. When we say there are very few hills today, we really mean it – we should fly along the second part of the ride! Our ride today ends on the outskirts of Rotterdam, the second-largest city in The Netherlands and one of the largest ports in the world.

Day 4

Rotterdam – Amsterdam (55 miles & ↑300 feet) Leaving Rotterdam behind, our route today heads northeast, skirting around the Netherland’s governmental hub of The Hague. You’ll know we’re getting close as we pass Amsterdam’s airport in the southwest of the city. A further ten miles and we reach the capital city of Amsterdam, one of the most cycle-friendly cities in the world! You made it! This evening we should have plenty of time to check into our hotel, grab a shower and have a final celebratory group meal in a nearby restaurant.
