Chatham to Amsterdam ride Monday June 19th – Saturday June 24th 2017
I’m always one to plan ahead, but maybe this is getting a bit silly… It’s over a year away but I’m already planning rides for 2017 (to be honest I’m planning for 2018 as well – but that will be a really big one).
In 1667 the Dutch sailed up the River Medway and attacked shore facilities and the Royal Dockyard at Chatham. In 2017 we’ll do a return trip – only on bikes and without the ship burning. It’ll be easy though right? Northern France, Belgium and the Netherlands are flat…
