Your itinerary:

Day 1: London to Calais
 Our challenge begins bright and early from Crystal Palace heading south on route to the white cliffs of Dover. The ferry takes us across to Calais and our first nights resting place. 95 miles (approx)

Day 2: Calais to Bruges

After a hearty French breakfast we head out for a slightly easier day in the saddle. The relatively flat route follows the coast through the Belgian boarder before turning inland toward our evening’s accommodation in beautiful Bruges. 80 miles (approx)

Day 3: Bruges to Breda

An early start is needed as we take on our longest day, but thanks to the Dutch landscape the route is relatively flat and we wind our way down through yet more beautiful countryside towards Breda. 95 miles (approx)

Day 4: Breda to Amsterdam

Our last day in the saddle, another long one luckily however this section is, for the most part flat. Before we know it we will be pedalling around the outskirts and heading in towards the bright lights of Amsterdam. 90 miles (approx)

Day 5: Amsterdam to London on the Eurostar

Today is free to explore the wonders of Amsterdam, taking in the sites and enjoying the city, you will then catch a coach to Brussels before transferring to the Eurostar to continue to London.
