Beer we go, beer we go

Beer we go, beer we go Royal British Legion's Annual Bike-to-Brussels Challenge Now in its fifth year, Bike-to-Brussels is a city-to-city cycle rally, ideal for all keen cyclists - from relative beginners to seasoned hands. The Royal British Legion is looking for people willing to raise money for the Poppy Appeal by taking part in the unique three-day ride. Bike-to-Brussels gives participants the chance to keep fit and have fun, while making new friends (and drinking beer!), and all the time raising much-needed money for the Legion's Poppy Appeal. The 225-mile trip from Dulwich, South London to Brussels already has a reputation as one of the best-organised, most enjoyable charity rides around. The experienced Legion road crew looks after all participants and ensures they have great fun completing the ride. Riders always make new and firm friends and, despite the mouth-watering free food and drink provided by villages en route, each rider definitely returns feeling fitter and ready to take on any challenge!
