The impressive Ride for the Roses is taking place this year in Aalsmeer on Sunday, 6 September 2015, starting and finishing at FloraHolland.
The Ride for the Roses is a cycle race for the professional cyclist (100 km) and the amateur cyclist (25 and 50 km), with the proceeds going to KWF Kankerbestrijding (cancer research fund). The proceeds from the Ride support research and education as weapons in the fight against cancer, increasing the potential for healing and improving the quality of life for people with cancer and their loved ones.
Horticultural sector and the Ride
The horticultural sector has an almost natural link to both cycling and the Ride for the Roses. Skating and cycling are the main sports in the sector. And the link between fighting cancer, emotions, and flowers and plants is evident. The cycle race is not called the Ride for the Roses for nothing. Each participant receives a red rose at the finish. The horticultural sector organises several additional actions to collect money for charity along with participation and the possibilities for sponsoring the Ride for the Roses.
