2017 - The Year I complete the hat-trick of Football to Amsterdam challenges.

I don't know what it is about fundraising for Prostate Cancer UK and cycling but I just can't get enough of it.

Starting at Barnsley FC's Oakwell Stadium, early on Friday 9th June, our destination lies on the outskirts of the Dutch Capital, Amsterdam.

The Amsterdam ArenA, home of the world famous Ajax, is where the challenge will once again end.

145 miles of cycling over a two day period, will be a challenge for anyone - no matter your level of cycling. Unless your Bradley Wiggins.

Day One will see the riders cycle South East our of the South Yorkshire town and along the beautiful Dearne Valley, across agricultural areas and quiet roads heading north around Doncaster and over the wash and into Hull for the finish before boarding the overnight Ferry for the overnight journey to Holland.

If you wish to see us on our journey, stop off points will be later confirmed.

Once arriving in Rotterdam for Day Two we will disembark the Ferry to begin the final leg of the journey; 74 miles North to Ajax Stadium, Amsterdam.

Day Two is slightly less arduous and affords you the time to get to know your group and form a real team spirit as you journey through the Netherlands on flat non hilly cycle tracks. You cycle straight into Amsterdam over canal after canal to finish at the famous Ajax Stadium. 

This will be the first time Scunthorpe United has been represented by four fundraisers. Each year the Club's team for Football to Amsterdam is slowly increasing and it is great to see so much support coming from all over for the Charity.

We would appreciate all your support for our team and this fantastic charity. Prostate Cancer is the most common cancer in men. Over 44,000 men are diagnosed with Prostate Cancer every year - that is more than 120 every single day.

Lets fight back and continue this journey to raise awareness and support Prostate Cancer to help more men survive and aid a better quality of life!
