Register your interest

You are invited to this once in a life time memorable experience,  to cycle from London to Brussels via Bruges in 2020.  You and 50 other like minded individuals, who love a challenge and have done a few of these events before; will be heading across the channel, cycling 70 miles a day, in search for Mussels and Belgian beer… and all for a good cause.

In May 2014 Oli Rifkind and a over 80 cyclists rode from London to Paris.  They endured the stunning scenery, the sore bottoms and the constant peddling, and raised over £250,000 for the Wellington Appeal, which supported both JDRF and the British Red Cross – a phenomenal achievement.

After numerous other events, Oli is back on the back, and inviting you to be a part of the next big challenge.   Book your place now on the exclusive ride and know that you are signing up for something seriously special.  This will be better than Paris, better than the Sahara, and you will finish this ride with memories you will treasure forever (before the babies)….

Registrations will open soon, but places are limited, so please register your interest below.
