Join Albion in the Community (AITC) on its next European cycle challenge and cycle between Calais and the beautiful Belgian city of Antwerp.

The event takes place between Thursday 6 June and Sunday 9 June 2019 and will include 170 miles of cycling between the French port and the finish line in Antwerp.

Cyclists will meet at the Amex on 6 June before travelling by coach and ferry to Calais, with the cycling getting underway the following morning.

Stage one takes in 77 miles of rural French countryside, the beautiful historic towns of Watten and Cassell and some of the region’s historic battlefields. The day finishes in the medieval town of Lille, one of northern France’s hidden gems, where cyclists will enjoy a relaxing evening and a well-earned rest.

Stage two takes place on the third day and covers the 93 miles between Lille and Antwerp. Riders will pass through the outskirts of Roubaix, home of the famous Roubaix bike race, before crossing the border into Belgium and travelling through scenic countryside, towns and villages. Once over the finish line, cyclists will enjoy a glass of Champagne and a celebratory meal.

The following morning is free for people to explore Antwerp, before meeting for coach transfer back to the UK.

Everyone who takes part will receive a limited edition Brighton & Hove Albion cycle jersey, full ride support, meals, three nights’ accommodation, and transfers between destinations.

Entry is £299, with a minimum fundraising target of £850.
