  Challenge yourself on this epic journey! See Europe and all it has to offer, whilst raising money for local children.

Travel from one great European city to another, powered by your own cycling steam. Over the course of two days, cyclists will cover 120 miles from England to Holland, taking in the great landscape and lots of beautiful canals and windmills. End in Amsterdam for a spot of sight seeing.

Whatever your reason, your support means local children and families who know they don’t have long together have the chance to live life to the full and say goodbye in the way that is right for them.
