London to Harwich, overnight ferry to The Netherlands (86 miles)
We’ll meet in London for an initial trip briefing from the More Adventure team. From here we begin cycling through the outskirts of East London into the glorious countryside of Essex. We’ll skirt around the city of Chelmsford before stopping for lunch in the pretty town of Maldon. Our route then heads towards Colchester before arriving at the port of Harwich. Here we’ll have an evening meal in a local restaurant then jump on the ferry for our overnight journey to The Netherlands.
Hook of Holland ‐ Amsterdam (54 miles)
After an evening’s sleep in the ferry’s cabins, we’ll be showered and ready to begin cycling in The Netherlands. The fantastic cycling lanes and lack of hills will make today a relatively straightforward and enjoyable ride. Our route skirts around the administrative centre and capital city of The Hague before entering the outskirts of Amsterdam. Our cycling journey ends in the vibrant city centre where we’ll take some team photos before heading to our hotel to freshen up. You’ll have earned a few drinks by this point, so we’ll go out for a celebratory meal and enjoy this wonderful city.
Amsterdam Sightseeing – train to London
Your main piece of luggage will be transferred by the More Adventure team to London, so after breakfast you will have the full day to experience the sights of Amsterdam. There’s plenty on offer, with an array of museums, delightful restaurants and seemingly endless canals to keep you entertained for hours! In the afternoon you’ll catch a train from the main station for connecting trains back to London where you’ll be met by the More Adventure team with your bicycles and luggage. Here the trip ends…what a journey!
