    The last stage promises to be a challenging ride. With a distance of over 80 kilometers, this is not only the longest ride, you will also have to overcome some climbs. However, the views over the Thames and central London will give you the extra energy you need.From the starting location it is approximately 50 kilometers before the Thames can be seen. The Thames is England's second longest river, running right through the heart of London. But first you cycle through a number of typical English villages with beautiful architecture. Rochester Cathedral is also beautiful.From Erith you keep following the left bank of the river for quite a few kilometers. The closer you get to the English capital, the more beautiful the views get. Along the way you will pass interesting architecture and shipyards. For example, you cycle past the O2 building, also known as the Millennium Dome. Known from the James Bond movie The World Is Not Enough.From the Greenwich district the route continues through the city. Despite the hustle and bustle of city life, cycling is pleasant here. The cycle path is about the "Cycleway Q1". A separate cycle path where you will encounter much less traffic over a section of six kilometers.The finish location of this Collection is in one of the most emblematic places of London; the Westminster Bridge. You can see the London Eye on one side and Big Ben on the other. It hardly gets much "Londoner". Maybe with a plate of Fish and Chips and an English Pint.The return trip to the Netherlands can be done in various ways. One option is by plane. Check the conditions of the airline company in advance. You can also take your bicycle with you on the Eurostar train. However, this is a bit more difficult due to various provisions. See the Eurostar website for more information. The easiest way is to return home by boat. A nice option is the ferry service between Harwich and Hoek van Holland.
