Join our fight for little lives
There are hundreds of thousands of children in the UK whose lives are devastated by disease and disability. It’s too many. Far too many. Research can put a stop to this.
For more than 60 years Action Medical Research has helped pioneer treatments and ways to prevent disease that have benefited millions of people in the UK and across the world. Our research has helped to beat polio in the UK, develop ultrasound in pregnancy, fight meningitis and prevent stillbirths.
But we urgently need to develop more new treatments and cures for sick babies and children and we can’t do it without you.
London Olympic Park to Harwich 80 Miles
Setting off from the iconic London Velodrome in the Olympic Park the ride quickly winds its way out of London and onto the lanes of Essex. After taking riders past Chelmsford the route follows sections of the national cycle towards Harwich. With short climbs and undulating terrain, the Essex countryside provides an interesting and picturesque first days riding.
Hook of Holland to Harlem via Amsterdam
After departing the ferry in the early hours of the morning the ride winds its way through the sand dunes on the western Dutch coastline along completely traffic free bike paths. After passing through the historic and picturesque city of The Hague the route tracks in land approaching Amsterdam from the south. The ride goes through the heart of Amsterdam before heading to Haarlem and the hotel.
Harlem to Breda
After leaving Haarlem the route tracks east towards Utrecht. Taking in traffic free cycle lanes along canals and through the Dutch countryside the day gives a true flavour of riding in the Netherlands. With hardly any hills it's the flattest day of the trip.
Breda to Brussels
The final day takes riders down from Breda across the Belgian border and into Brussels. On the approach to Brussels the route takes a slight detour to the Eddy Merckx factory for a fascinating visit. The ride finishes in the heart of Belgium in front of the Palais de Bruxelles.
