Cycling London to Amsterdam

A remarkable cycle challenge, taking in four different countries and journeying through some captivating countryside. You will begin at the famous Greenwich Observatory. The ride passes through the cycle- friendly and beautiful cities of Bruges and The Hague, finishing in the very heart of Amsterdam at the Klonjkleik Paleis. Cycle beside the long beaches of Dunkirk, the waterways and tree-lined canals, and through pretty farmland dotted with windmills while making your way northwards along the coast towards Amsterdam. Experience a true sense of achievement as you enter the streets of Amsterdam, memorable indeed.

Itinerary

Day One – London to Dover
The route takes in Greenwich Park, Shooters Hill, and then follows the Thames corridor through to Dartford. From there you skirt Maidstone passing through Coxheath, Lenham and over the Kent Downs towards Folkestone. The route follows the coast northwards from Folkestone to Dover, for your overnight stay.
Distance: 79 miles (129 km)

Day Two – Calais to Bruges
Three countries in one day! Enjoy an early morning ferry crossing and then experience gentle cycling on the lowlands of the Pas de Calais and the Flanders region of Belgium. Cycling via quiet country lanes, charming coastline, tree-lined canals and the historic town of Dunkirk. Cross the border into Belgium and end the day in the beautiful town of Bruges.
Distance: 73 miles (118 km)

Day Three – Bruges to Hellevoetsluis
From Bruges, we enter the Netherlands, the ultimate cycling nation, and head towards the coast via the charming town of Sluis. Ride past fields famous for their springtime tulips and dotted with windmills. Stopping at Breskens, we take the small ferry to Vlissingen and cycle over the many waterways on to Hellevoetsluis.

Day Four – Hellevoetsluis to Amsterdam
Pedal past long beaches, sand dunes and polders on flat terrain on Holland’s excellent cycle network in this fascinating region much of it artificially created by huge dikes holding back the sea. Soon Amsterdam is in our sights as we enter this cycle-friendly city, quaint canals and picturesque buildings, to our final stop at the grand Koninklijk Paleis.
Distance: 61 miles (98 km)
