London To Amsterdam Challenge Begins

12 June 2015

Football League Clubs Represented In Charity Cycle For PCUK

Blackpool's Gareth Godfrey-Brown and Jamie Ogden are on their bikes this morning for the first part of the London to Amsterdam charity cycle.

The pair have joined representatives from other clubs in The Football League on a two-day, 145-mile trek to raise valuable funds for Prostate Cancer UK.

Former international footballers Terry Butcher, Luther Blissett and Matt Holland are also taking part, as is former Blackpool manager Simon Grayson.

Representatives gathered at The Matchroom Stadium – home of Leyton Orient – in East London earlier today for a quick photo, prior to the now annual #L2A getting underway, which aims to raise over £250,000 to help save men’s lives.

The ‘peloton’ will head out of London through rural English countryside before stopping off at Colchester United’s Weston Homes Community Stadium.

After completing the 83-mile ride to Harwich by dusk, the team will then cross the Channel overnight, before riding a further 62 miles along the pristine pathways of the Netherlands, culminating in a finale at the Amsterdam ArenA, home of AFC Ajax.
