Represent Dons in Europe

22 September 2015

Sign-up for event in aid of great cause

You can represent AFC Wimbledon in Europe next year by taking part in Prostate Cancer UK’s annual charity bike ride to Amsterdam.

Dust off those bikes, squeeze into some lycra and get your helmet on to represent AFC Wimbledon 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.

For the first time, the event will have two start locations with Barnsley FC’s Oakwell Stadium aimed at those representing northern clubs and the iconic Olympic Park in East London will once again be utilised.

  – a disease that will affect one in eight men in their lifetime – and the aim for 2016 is to double the number of riders to 500.Prostate CancerLast year over £350,000 was raised for

The 250-strong peloton in 2015 included former international trio Terry Butcher, Matt Holland and Luther Blissett, together with Preston North End boss Simon Grayson.

Yorkshireman Grayson is making no promises, but there’s strong suspicion that he’ll be back in the saddle.

He said: “I think it’s brilliant that the ride will cater for football teams both in the north and the south. It will make it easier for northerners like us to get our bikes over to the start point – although I hear the northern leg’s terrain is much hillier!”

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.
