About & Details

This trip takes you through three different countries on a truly European cycle trip. In a long weekend, you cycle via the Dover – Calais crossing and the beautiful cities of Bruges and Ghent to the hip and quirky city of Brussels, the administrative capital of the EU.

Starting at Greenwich Observatory in London, you cycle through the Kent countryside, the Pas de Calais and Flanders regions with time to enjoy the historical cities of Bruges, Ghent and Brussels. The ride finishes in one of the world’s most beautiful squares, the Grand Place, in the centre of Brussels.

On a bike you feel the wind in your face, and get a real chance to explore some beautiful corners of England, France and Belgium on the way. Once out of London, you pass through one of the harder sections of the route, as you go through Kent and the North Downs. The countryside is verdant, and remarkably much as it was in past centuries. From Calais you head along the Pas de Calais past long sandy beaches towards Dunkirk and inland to the very beautiful city of Bruges.

The final day in the Flanders region of Belgium includes pleasant cycling along dedicated cycle paths via Ghent to Brussels. Celebrate your achievement as you cycle past fascinating gothic guild houses and Baroque buildings into the heart of Brussels. Enjoy a morning wandering through the medieval streets and perhaps visiting one of the great museums or visit the gothic Cathedral of Saints Michel and Gudule before taking the Eurostar back to London.

We realy appreciated the tour we did on Hadrians Wall path in May.Beautiful scenery, decent weather, god arrangements including lodging, transport, bagagehandling etc. We came well prepared . In this preparation Maximum adventures gave us great support, as we are coming from abroad with no knowledge of conditions on the path. We had great BnBs and could concentrate on de daily walks that gave us great pleasure.Thank you England and Hadrians Wall path for your friendly reception and well mantained walking path.Thank you Maximum Adventures for your good service.We would love to come back in the future.

Maximum Adventure did a great job for us. With less than a month's notice, it set up an itinerary, lodging and luggage porterage for a walk from Carlisle to Newcastle, England along Hadrian's Wall. The lodging was fantastic, as was the itinerary and support during the walk. We'd definitely use Maximum Adventure again and would recommend them without reservation!

I was part of a climb on 23/09, didn't think I would make ut, but I did. The descent was a different story.. I got jelly legs and lost my confidence. If it wasn't for James, my Sherpa would never have made it. Can't thank him enough, Will, met you briefly.Both of them were very knowledgeable, we had the most amazing views at the summit...the pain is still worth it and

I walked the West Highland Way with my dad and brother. The organisation was excellent by Samantha. Itinerary and instructions were clear and all the bookings and luggage transfers went smoothly. As a result we were able to ensure the fantastic walk and not worry about anything. I would happily recommend Maximum Adventure to others.

We just got home from our 8-days Hadrian's Wall hike and we just loved it!Everything was perfectly organized!We had great B&Bs and hotels with very friendly, welcoming and helpful staff. Our favorite was the Dacre House with Clare. But then again, all were great!The luggage was always at the day's destination, no matter how early we got to the accommodation.The description of how to get to the accommodations were clear and precise.The road map and the guide book were waiting for us as we got to the first B&B and were very helpful and interestingThanks, Maximum Adventure!

Booked for the 3 UK Peaks adventure, it was organised perfectly and everything when to plan. Accommodation was good, transport excellent, our guide (Patrick) brilliant, so cannot fault the trip and adventure. I personally expected too much from myself and was unable to fully summit as this adventure is not for beginners, I climbed Kilimanjaro in 2003 when I was 42 and twenty years later, although relatively fit, my endurance didn't last. So I did a half summit for Ben Nevis & Scafell, thanks to Patrick for letting go back down on my own, it was brilliant. With Snowdon, a half summit is tricky as you can't descend the way you go up, so I decided to do some hiking in the area while the rest of the group did the climb. I took a chance and went to the ticket office and managed to get a single return ticket up to the summit of Snowdon at 9am which returned down by 11.30am. I was hoping to see my group on top and spring a surprise but the weather was terrible. I highly recommend the trip but make sure you are fit enough otherwise as there is an emphasis on time, so a slow walk up is going to slow everyone down and really delay the trip. Have Fun, Simon Bradish

Just an amazing experience. Maximum Adventure booked us into a great hotel in Fort William, and after a great night' rest - we met our guide Innes. Innes was brilliant. He gave us the confidence we needed and looked after the entire group. He also waited until the last person was down off the mountain safely. We also learned a lot about the history and geography of the region as well. It was fantastic. Thank you Maximum Adventure.

Great service from MA. Good, prompt communications, the accommodations they booked were all either on the trail or within a mile of it. Good maps, info, and updates.

How to take part for Charity

To do this challenge for a charity there is a non-refundable registration fee, payable to Maximum Adventure at the time of booking.  You can then choose between the two different options below.

Self-Funding

Pay a registration fee at the time of booking then the balance due 10 weeks before departure.  With the self-funding option, you personally cover the full cost of the challenge.  This option means that there is no minimum sponsorship target due, but we encourage you to raise as much money as you can for the charity.
