London To Amsterdam bike ride 2010

Basically I’m on the scrounge for sponsorship. On Friday September the 3rd, along with 100 other riders I will be participating in a bike ride to raise money for the charities “Hope and Play” and “Action for Children”. Over 3 days we will be cycling just over 182 miles, from Stanstead in London, to the centre of Amsterdam in Holland.

To put the distance of how far we will be riding into perspective, it will be the equivalent to doing the London to Brighton bike ride, every day for just over three days.

Here is how we will do it

Day 1:
Stansted Mountfitchet to Harwich – about 110km (68 miles) though undulating Essex countryside. At 9.30am we will leave Stansted Mountfitchet where we will make our way to Harwich.

Day 2:
Hook of Holland to Heemskerk – about 135km (83 miles) up the F1 cycle path on the Dutch coast. We will disembark the ferry at around 7.30 and straight onto the cycle path up the cost. Heading through the Kennemerduinen Nature Reserve we will make our way to Heemskerk.

Day 3:
Heemskerk to central Amsterdam – about 50km (31miles) This will be the final stage of the ride and will take us nicely in to the centre of Amsterdam

You can sponsor me at virgin money giving, . Any donations, no matter how small will hopefully help me reach my target of £500 of which all of it will be going directly to the charities as I am covering the £290 trip costs myself.

Last but not least, no we will not be cycling home!!

Thanks in advance for your generosity.

Not sure if anyone actually reads my blog, but anyway it’s worth a go and any extra pennies will be worth it!!! 🙂
