Awe-inspiring Charity Cycle Challenge 2018 Rotterdam(Holland) to Andermatt (Switzerland) 1230 Kilometers(764miles) in 7 days
Who’s given up on their New Years resolution? If so consider this!!!!!!!!
A number of people have asked about undertaking a more epic cycle ride in 2018, having cycled 500 miles across Europe. Subsequently I looked at a number of routes, but quite frankly the EuroVelo 15 looks fantastic and more significantly achievable for one and all. I visualise completing the cycle challenge of 1230 Kilometres in 7 days, cycling from the Hook of Holland to Andermatt. For those who do not wish to cycle the whole route, provisions could be made that would permit them to canoe/kayak/walk/run parts of the river/support, which in its self would be challenging. I would also encourage couples to consider the event by completing the challenge via a relay. I envisage the biggest cost being hotels, considerably less if we camp, as I am considering using camp sites situated on the edge of the Rhine to allow everyone to relax in a beautiful setting and appreciate the great outdoors or use local hotels (depending on the views of the participants). Travelling out will necessitate an overnight ferry from Harwich to Rotterdam on the 23rd May 2018. On the way home overnight hotel stop in France (Celebration meal) as we make our way home from Switzerland via Calais/Le Harve.
