The second edition of the Tour of Schiphol: The Tour of Schiphol
The second edition of the 'Tour of Schiphol' was held on Sunday 21 May. This is an annual cycling event first organised in 2016 in honour of the 100th anniversary of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. The 30 or 45 km cycling route took in many interesting sights at and around Schiphol. Some of these sights were open especially to the cyclists!
The Schiphol Fund organises and finances activities intended to promote sport and physical exercise in the environs of Schiphol. The fund is keen to encourage active recreation in as many people as possible and to put the Netherlands more firmly on the cycling map through this tour.
Het bestuur van het Schipholfonds besluit eind 2017 of er een nieuwe editie van de Ronde van Schiphol komt in 2018 en zo ja wanneer.
The start and finish are situated near Wings Food & Drinks at Schiphol-Oost. The official departure of the race will be signalled by Schiphol Fund Chairman Tom Egbers and Chief Commercial Officer of Royal Schiphol Group André van den Berg at 10:00. You can use this starting location from 10:00. Of course it is also possible to start at a later time. This starting point serves for both the 30 and 45 km cycling routes.
Another option is to start at the opposite side of the route near Museum De Cruquius from 10:00 if this is more convenient. Please note: from this point only the 45 km route can be taken.
The address of the official departure is:
