Day 1: London to Calais

Day 2: Calais to Bruges​
After a lovely French breakfast, we head out for a slightly easier ride on two wheels. The relatively flat route follows the coast through the Belgian border along the picturesque canals before turning inland toward our evening’s accommodation in beautiful Bruges. This fairy-tale town is filled with pretty cobbled streets and medieval buildings, a picture-perfect end to day two! Approx. 80 miles cycling  (approx)

Day 3: Bruges to Breda
Our adventure continues with an early start!  The Dutch landscape will provide us with a smoother ride as we pedal away from Bruges and wind our way down through charming country side towards Breda. 95 miles cycling (approx)

Day 4: Breda to Amsterdam
Our final day of cycling will be a long ride to the finish line but we shall be  taking on a flatter route passing the canals, blossoming tulips and windmills synonymous with the Netherlands.

This wonderful city is a hub of art, history, hidden gems and stunning sites – what a finish line! 90  miles cycling (approx)
