SeaQurrent participates in the Ride for the Roses

The goal of the Ride for the Roses is to make a fist in the fight against cancer with a unique bike ride:

• raising funds for the KWF Kankerbestrijding, the dutch cancer society;
• making the disease cancer a topic of discussion;
• promoting a healthy lifestyle, in which sufficient exercise and healthy nutrition are central.

The Ride for the Roses raises money (as much as possible) for KWF Kankerbestrijding through a unique bike ride. In 20 years Ride for the Roses is already around 15 million euros cycled together!

An annual cycling trip
In 1998 the starting shot was given in Amsterdam for the first Ride for the Roses in the Netherlands. The Ride for the Roses is organised annually and in 2018 it was already the 21st edition. On September 9, 2018, the 21st edition of the Ride for the Roses was held in the municipality of Haarlemmermeer.

The Ride for the Roses is a well known event in the Dutch cycling world. Everyone can participate. There are several possibilities: a cycletour of 100 kilometers and three tours of 25, 50 and 80 kilometers. Participants in the cycling tour cycle in the largest platoon in the world! Thousands of cyclists cycle as a continuous group with an average speed between 25 and 28 km/h. This under full police guidance on a blocked road. The participants of the tour enjoy beautiful routes and can pause along the way at one of the Ride fort he Roses stops.

We have enjoyed this day very much and we are happy that we have been able to make a small contribution in the fight against cancer. As quoted by Roz Savage, a famous solo ocean rower, we believe “a single action is not just a drop in the ocean, it spreads ripples of change. Further than you will ever know. Your actions, words, writings, opportunities to inluence and your causes, it all adds up”.

We look forward to the next edition!
