The cycling networking tour will see around 70 riders going from London to Amsterdam and finally Brussels as the route showcases some of the best of European riding with car free bike paths and quiet cycleways taking riders through the Benelux.
The 310 mile ride will take on a different challenge with the route starting in London – the home of Lloyd’s of London, covering Holland and for the first time, ending in Belgium – the home to Lloyd’s European operation. Lloyd’s of London will also be sponsoring a drinks reception at the finish line in Brussels where guests can celebrate the massive achievement of this momentous ride.

We could not do this without the support of our key sponsors Brit, Ki, Lloyd’s, SCOR and Lockton who have made this ride possible and enabled us to continue funding vital research to help sick and disabled babies, children and young people.”
