Cycle for Science - Glasgow 2018

The first Cycle for Science in 2016 was organised by Niek van Dijk and his AMC faculty.
The tour had a two-fold task — to raise awareness about the importance of exercise, and to raise money for the ESSKA Foundation to support research.

2016 Cycle for Science

ESSKA, a group of orthopaedic surgeons and members of the Ankle Platform rode from the 2014 ESSKA hosting city, Amsterdam, to the 17th biennial ESSKA Congress in Barcelona.
The tour consisted of six stages in four countries combined with four scientific symposia. The route included two classic “Tour de France-climbs” — the Alpe d’Huez and the Mont Ventoux.
