Help us to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care 

On the 24th May 08 we're taking 60 female cycling novices from York to Amsterdam, riding approximately 250 miles to raise money for Marie Curie. 

Cycling from York Designer Outlet to Hull past the Humber Bridge, we'll jump on a ferry to drink, dance and sleep our way to Rotterdam. Once in Holland we'll cycle along the coastline for miles, passing sand dunes, windmills, canals and fields of blooming tulips. We'll pass through the historic city of Harlaam to finish in the unique city of Amsterdam. Then we'll turn around and ride back again!
