Thursday, 30 June 2022
Want to visit ADE 2022 and to help a good cause while on your way? The annual Cycle to ADE returns in full force this year, taking artists, music professionals and others on a 500km trip from London to the finish line at Amsterdam Dance Event.

From the bridges of London to the heart of ADE, cyclists will ride to Amsterdam in a four-day cycle with the goal to raise funds for its the Bridges for Music program that provides quality education to young talent in underserved communities in South Africa. However, with the war taking place in Ukraine, this year’s ride has also partnered with organisation Choose Love to help supply humanitarian aid for refugees.

With previous years welcoming the likes of James Haskell, Arielle Free, Richie Hawtin and Joris Voorn, this year’s team so far has confirmed musicians Msaki, Rebekah, Dope Saint Jude and teams sponsored by SONOS, as well as riders from Parlophone/FFRR, Fabric and more to be announced.

After the 500km ride, cyclists will reach the finish line at the heart of the ADE conference on Wednesday, October 19, where all riders and other industry professionals will be welcomed by familiar faces for some welcome drinks and a special event hosted by Bridges for Music.

Anyone interested can sign up for the ride and help make a difference below. Expect daily accommodation, official cycling kit, breakfast and energy boosting snacks, luggage transport, bike return to London and a very warm welcome at Amsterdam Dance Event 2022.

With a limited number of places available, make sure to register for a spot soon.
