Brighton to Amsterdam: June 26th - 30th 2019

We are super excited to share with you that we will be cycling all the way to Amsterdam for this year’s Bike Ride!

This will be a new collaboration between ourselves and Accordance VAT to highlight them opening their new office in Amsterdam and we’re thrilled to have them support us.

Leaving Brighton on June 26th our route will take us to Folkestone where we’ll board the Eurostar to Calais. From Calais we will make our way to Ghent-Tilberg in Belgium and for the final leg of the ride, on to Amsterdam!

We are delighted to have the Implant Centre and Accordance VAT as our Headline sponsors for this event. Thanks also to Fran Dirand, Virgin Active Falmer and David Lloyd at Brighton Marina for their support.

In the run up to this event we’ll be organising Spinathons with the help of Sara from Velusso and Fran from Virgin Active. We also plan to have regular cycle meet ups weather permitting which will help our cyclists prepare for the challenge ahead.

For those unable to commit to the 4 day bike ride, we plan to make Day 1 - 81.6 miles from Brighton to Folkestone - a ride on its own. More details here.
