DJS CYCLE 500KM FROM LONDON TO AMSTERDAM DANCE EVENT FOR CHARITY
Back bigger than ever, DJs and the music industry will gather again for the annual Amsterdam Dance Event cycle. Being the 6th edition, this ride pedals off from London cycling over 500km and will arrive in time for ADE, the biggest dance music conference and festival in the world.
Stretched across four days, the ride will kick off on the 16th of October from London, passing through France and Belgium to arrive in Amsterdam on the 19th of October for the biggest dance music conference in the world.
The event was set up by the charity, Bridges for Music, to raise funds for its 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 partnered with Choose Love to help supply humanitarian aid for refugees.
DJ Rebekah, who joined the ADE CYCLE in 2019 & 2020 said:
“Joining the ADE/Bridges for Music cycle was one of the most exhilarating experiences, yet challenging, a true test of fitness. All whilst raising money for an awesome cause”
Over the past six years, 100+ industry heavyweights have been involved in raising over €200,000 for Bridges For Music, which has all been put towards the construction and running of a pioneering learning centre in Langa Township, South Africa. Each year 200 students are enrolled on Bridges growing MUSIC MBA program, a holistic program combining creative entrepreneurship, mindfulness and music. The funds raised from this annual cycle aim to enrol even more students to free education.
With previous years welcoming the likes of James Haskell, Arielle Free, Richie Hawtin and Joris Voorn, this year’s team has already confirmed musicians, Msaki, Rebekah, Dope Saint Jude as well as riders from Parlophone/FFRR, Fabric and more to be announced.
Early bird fees start at €800 and include accommodation, breakfast and energy snacks, an official ADE kit, bike return to London, luggage transport, a welcome lunch at ADE and an ADE Pro Pass (worth €525).
