Sign up for the Prostate Cancer UK London to Amsterdam cycle challenge

For most clubs European excursions are not on the agenda. Luckily, as the Official Charity Partner of The Football League, Prostate Cancer UK is providing Stevenage supporters with a European footballing adventure they don’t have to dream about. 

The London to Amsterdam Challenge is calling on groups of friends to represent Boro in joining a star-studded peloton cycling from Leyton Orient FC to Dutch giants Ajax. 

International trio Luther Blissett, Terry Butcher and Matt Holland will line up at The Matchroom Stadium in east London in the early hours of Friday 12 June 2015 for the third annual #L2A, aiming to raise over £250,000 to help save men’s lives. 

The 145-mile event includes a half-time pit-stop at Colchester United FC before the squad set sail from Harwich at the end of day one. The second day, Saturday, June 13th takes in a serene sojourn along the pristine pathways of the Netherlands culminating in a finale at the Amsterdam ArenA. 

Last year Stevenage had one of the largest teams on the event with 7 members and they were among the highest fund-raisers in the Football League too - a fantastic achievement! You can read about their experience's last year here.

Prostate cancer kills one man every hour in the UK, and in 2014 riders from more than 50 clubs helped raise more than £200,000 to support the 250,000 men affected by the disease in the UK.

Not only will you and your mates have a great excuse to visit Amsterdam, you’ll be helping to beat prostate cancer.
