This award-winning ride is an annual event dedicated to the memory of David Eales. David was a passionate advocate for the transformative power of cycling, and took an active role in a wide range of cycling groups in London, many of which were local groups of the London Cycling Campaign, who inspired the very first ride. It was this first ride in 2016 that David had planned to participate in, and the ride has since been dedicated to his memory when he was taken from us mere months before departure.
The David Eales Memorial ride is a 4-6 day group charity ride from London (or Dunkerque) to Amsterdam each September. The ride is long but leisurely, averaging 60 miles (about 100km) each day. The cycling conditions in Belgium and the Netherlands are level and pleasant, allowing riders to take in the scenery along the route.
Riders organise in groups of 4-6 with advice and support from veterans of the ride. Hostels are booked by the groups themselves, and group members perform navigation and logistics for one another while riding.
Riders will are taking on this challenge in support of London Cycling Campaign – donate to the team today!
