Swap St James Park for the Amsterdam Arena

Leave your rivalries on the pitch and get on your bike to help stop a disease that kills one man every 45 minutes.

27 October 2017

On 1-3 June 2018, two weeks before the World Cup kicks off, hundreds of football fans will take part in Prostate Cancer UK and the EFL’s Football to Amsterdam bike ride and you could be one of them.

Putting rivalries aside, fans will unite to ride 145 miles over two days before finishing at the Amsterdam Arena.

Not only is it a chance to represent the Grecians, but with the help of fans from across the EFL, it’s an opportunity to turn the game around for men everywhere.

This is a game of two halves and your mates and you can make the difference to relegate the most common cancer in men in the UK.

Last year 380 football fans took part and raised £600,000 which can pay for over a year’s worth of life-changing research, so this really is a ride of a lifetime.

City's commercial coordinator Jake Wood has completed the challenge for the past two years, and is planning to do it again this year.

“Last year's ride was a real challenge, but a great event, and it was great to be able to raise money for an important cause." said Jake.

Once signed up riders are supported every pedal of the way and will join an elite club to receive a Prostate Cancer UK cycling jersey plus a unique finishers medal when they cross the finish line.

There are two start locations to choose from – one in London at the Olympic Park and the other in Yorkshire at Barnsley’s Oakwell Stadium.

So what are you waiting for? It’s time to get on your bike and represent Exeter City in the biggest ride in football.

Sign up by the end of October and get £50 off registration with the code EARLYBIRD50.
