Explore Europe on Two Wheels!

18th May 2018 / Events

The 3 Cities Cycle Weekend from 18th to 20th May!

This 3 day cycle is a fantastic ride, joining three of Europe's most historic cities: Dunkerque, Bruges and Ypres. 

Our journey takes us from England through the Flemish Region of France and Belgium and onwards to Holland, where you are sure to receive a warm welcome with 85 percent of the population owning at least one bicycle.

Some of the highlights of the trip include the historic fortified town of Ypres famous for its battle fields and the Last Poet at the historical Menin Gate. 

The Itinerary:

  • Day 1: Dunkerque- Bruges (Approx. 75 miles)

Our ferry departs Dover at 8am, arriving at Dunkerque at 11am (local time). From there you'll follow the French coastal roads, over the Belgium border to our lunch stop in Neiwport. After lunch you'll have time to explore the beautiful 'Venice of the North'.

  • Day 2: Bruges- Ypres (Approx. 68 miles)

Following breakfast you'll head off towards the border of Holland and the town of Sluisse where you'll stop for coffee and cake. Following the cycle path, its then on to Ypres and its famous battlefields.

  • Day 3: Ypres- Dunkerque (Approx. 54 miles)

Passing through the hop fields of Popperinge you'll embark on your only climb of the trip, up to the town of Casel where the lunch and amazing views will make it well worth the effort. It's then time to head back to Dunkerque where your ferry home awaits.

The cost of the trip comes to £500 per person but that price includes:

  • 3* Hotel & B&B Accommodation
