Night Stops - Bruges
We leave Nieuwpoort at 1000 for a relaxing ride across the flat but interesting landscape towards Bruges, assembling outside the city at 1300 for a police-escorted ride as a peleton into the city centre.
Our ride terminates in the Markt, right in the centre of the town and in front of the famous Belfry Tower.
There's time for photos before you head on to your hotel and hand over your bike for a well-earned rest.
Our hotel for the evening is the Martin's Hotel Brugge, a two minute walk from Markt, and an ideal base from which to explore the town.
You can explore Bruges before our Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony in the evening at De Halve Maan, a famous brewery which is a ten minute walk from the hotel.
The following morning there are a number of different options.
You can either check out and leave your bag at the hotel, staying in Bruges for the day and exploring this wonderful UNESCO World Heritage town, or you can take a train into Brussels for shopping.
Your early evening Eurostar will have you back at St Pancras in London by 8:00pm. Should you wish, you can reserve an extra night at Martin's Hotel in Bruges - let us know if this is of interest!!
