Day 2 – Thur 15th – Bruges (Brugge) > Rotterdam

Summary: A stunning 100-mile ride to Rotterdam including a ferry across the Western Scheldt and via one of The Seven Wonders of the Modern World, the incredible Delta Works.

Start: Setting off when ready but we advise 8am. It’s a long day so slower riders may wish to leave a bit earlier.

Support: There will be water stops/support vehicles along the route (approx. every 25 miles) as well as local services along the route.

Hotel:  We’re staying in the The Novotel Brainpark, Rotterdam. Note that this is not in the city centre so a metro/bus/cab ride will be required to get you there once you’ve checked in. Here is a link to the hotel for your information. This is a group booking so you must not contact the hotel directly about anything relating to your stay.

This route is split into two parts as there is a ferry crossing involved.

There is also a tunnel (pt 2, 76 miles). There are actually 3 tunnels – fast-traffic road, slow-traffic road and everyone-else. You can only cycle in the latter. There are (huge) lifts and escalators to get up/down to the tunnel or you can use part of the slow-traffic road, then switch over at entrance to tunnels (there are clear “no cycling” signs on the entrance to the slow-traffic tunnel). Note that you may not use the lift or escalator if you have a horse with you.
