LONDON TO AMSTERDAM: Team Doncaster Rovers

22 May 2015

Doncaster Rovers are doing their bit this June and getting in the saddle all in the name of charity as they tackle the Football League’s ‘London to Amsterdam Challenge’.

Communications worker Abi Rodwell will join hundreds of other Football League representatives for the third cycle ride across the continent in aid of Prostate Cancer UK (PCUK).


Abi, who has been training for up to eighty miles per week, has also been raising money for the good cause of the Football League’s Official Charity Partner, PCUK.


"It's definitely going to be a challenge," she said. 

"Before I started training I hadn't ridden a bike in over ten years but I'm really looking forward to it!

"This is my first ever fundraising event so it will go down as a massive achievement for me. I've raised over £1,600 so far for Prostate Cancer which is more than I ever thought I'd raise."

Representatives will gather at The Matchroom Stadium – home of Leyton Orient – in East London in the early hours of Friday 12th June for the now annual #L2A, aiming to raise over £250,000 to help save men’s lives.

The ‘peloton’ will head out of London through rural English countryside before stopping off at Colchester United’s Weston Homes Community Stadium.

After completing the 83 mile ride to Harwich by dusk, the team will then cross the Channel overnight, before riding a further 62 miles along the pristine pathways of the Netherlands, culminating in a finale at the Amsterdam ArenA.
