Join Bolton Wanderers and represent the Trotters in Europe in 2016
Hold on to your helmets, because the biggest ride in football is about to get bigger for Prostate Cancer UK’s annual football fundraiser.
Dust off those bikes, squeeze into some unflattering lycra and get your helmet on to represent Bolton Wanderers and Prostate Cancer UK’s Men United in Europe on 3-5 June 2016 for a 145 mile cycle ride in conjunction with The Football League.
Formerly known as the London to Amsterdam – 2016’s challenge is getting a makeover! In an exciting new development, the charity ride will consist of two start locations to become the all-inclusive Football to Amsterdam, with Whites Commercial Executive John Ashley representing Wanderers in the ride next year.
London or Yorkshire?
In 2016, there are two start locations:
• Set off from Barnsley FC’s Oakwell Stadium – home of the Tykes since 1888.
• Or kick off from the iconic Olympic Park in East London.
Last year’s event was a sell out with more than 250 riders – including former international trio Terry Butcher, Matt Holland and Luther Blissett, together with Preston North End boss Simon Grayson.
In 2015, a former member of the Wanderers ground staff, Gareth Lester, took part in the ride in memory of another former Bolton employee, Dave Melling, who sadly lost his battle with prostate cancer in September 2014.
The collective Men United squad raised a whopping £350,000 for Prostate Cancer UK, an amount which will go a long way in helping men who are affected by the disease and crucially pave the way for new research and treatments.

Registration fee is £149. Each rider will pledge to raise a minimum of £1,000 in sponsorship to help fight back against a disease that affects one in eight men in the UK.

If you’re still not convinced this is going to be the trip of a lifetime, then check out last year’s ride to get a flavour of the adventure.
