Ride to Ypres with us in 2021

This three day trip remembers the incredible sacrifices made by all those who fought in both World Wars.

Our dedicated trip historian helps us appreciate the sacrifices that were made by so many as we cycle through this stunning countryside.

Join this ride and you’ll be helping us to provide support and services to veterans in need of help today as you combine your love of cycling and history as you take on this special event for The Royal British Legion.

Your cycle journey will start from Dover and passes through key historical regions of France and Belgium. Our visits to battlefields, cemeteries and memorials along the route will bring a strong feeling of Remembrance to this scenic bike ride.

You can enjoy the countryside and focus on cycling while our expert team look after you.

We’ll encourage you all the way, ensuring you enjoy the experience of possibly your first multi-day ride and at the finish you’ll pass through the iconic Menin Gate in Ypres. A moving and poignant end to your ride.  

This ride is about comradery and creating a personal community of riders who have a remarkable experience together exploring history. There is a limit of only 50 places on this ride so don’t wait to sign up.

There are additional package options if you would like to book travel for you and your bike + Dover accommodation the day before from London and returning on Monday.
