Many clubs, including this one, are joining The Football League London to Amsterdam Challenge in support of Prostate Cancer UK. Fans, players and club officials from across The Football League will take to the saddle for a unique two day "Total Football" themed, 155 mile challenge for the 250,000 men living with prostate cancer across the UK.
The ride will see fans pedal from capital to capital, raising money for prostate cancer. Kicking off on Friday 14 June, the route will pass through the picturesque countryside of rural England, before crossing The Channel at Harwich and onto the flat landscape of Dutch Zeeland. The sight of Amsterdam with its network of canals, cobbled streets and wonderful architecture on Saturday will mark the end of a fantastic ride and the start of the Total Football celebrations.
Former England, Watford and AC Milan Striker, Luther Blissett, has already signed up, and other footballing legends are expected to follow. Luther told us: "Rivalry between clubs can be fierce, and although this isn't meant to be a race, I am sure there'll be a sprint to reach the finish line, but we'll definitely be all on the same team when it comes to raising awareness and funds for prostate cancer."
Fans can find more details and sign up at prostatecanceruk.org/amsterdam to represent your club for the London-Amsterdam cycling challenge.
