BURTON Albion’s team is shaping up for the mammoth cycle to Amsterdam all in the name of prostate cancer and you can still be part of it.

500 cyclists, 3 days, 2 countries, 1 aim. Help stop prostate cancer being a killer.


Join Prostate cancer UK and the EFL next June (9th-11th) for a two day, 145-mile pedal-pilgrimage ending with a night out in Amsterdam.


The event that spans two nights and three days (two spent cycling) ends at the famous Amsterdam Arena home to Dutch footballing giants Ajax.


This is your chance to ride alongside footballing legends and like-minded football fans across the EFL in a bid to get fit and raise lots of money for a great cause.


There are two start points for the ride, one in London and one in Barnsley where a sea of the club colours will ride together through the English countryside to Harwich and Hull respectively.


 Once in Holland the two routes will converge and cyclists united in their Prostate Cancer UK cycling jerseys.


Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men.  1 in 8 men will get prostate cancer, while the odds for black men are just 1 in 4. 

Join the fight and get pedalling for pounds to help stop prostate cancer being a killer. 

The Burton Albion team will be meeting for an information evening at the Pirelli Stadium on the 7th of November at 6pm which can answer any queries possible riders may have.
