Football to Amsterdam is the biggest ride – and the biggest party – in football, taking place on 9-11 June 2017. Backed by the English Football League and the League Managers Association, it’s an event football fans can’t ignore.
Former club members Phil Biddulph and Martyn Chealte along with club committee member Simon Morgan are taking part in this years event, they will be cycling from Barnsley Football Club to Amsterdam over two days which is around 145 miles.
The lads will be cycling alongside former Nottingham Forest and England legend Viv Anderson (pictured left) who is also famously known for not playing for Clifton All Whites.
All 3 lads have a target of raising at least £1000 each and together with your help they can active this and help towards the grand total the Help Men United with to raise which is £500,000
The lads will start their journey from Oakwell, the home of Barnsley FC following the Dearne Valley and take riders through the scenic Yorkshire countryside, past Doncaster Rovers’ Keepmoat Stadium and complete the first day’s ride in Hull where they will get the overnight ferry to Rotterdam where they will meet up with the riders that are setting off from London
After the overnight ferry to Rotterdam and a few beers, the second day will continue along the picturesque pathways of the Netherlands before the two Men United pelotons converge at the iconic Amsterdam ArenA, home of Dutch giants Ajax.
