Cycling for Sophia 2021
30ste edition Cycling for Sophia!
It has been a crazy year due to the corona virus and a difficult time for everyone. But it is precisely in this time that we need all the extra help for the Erasmus MC-Sophia Children's Hospital.
The 30th edition of Sports for Sophia in Topsportcentrum Rotterdam is on the schedule on 12, 13 and 14 February 2021. As an organization, we aim to allow this to take place in an adapted way. You will cycle in blocks of 2 and 2.5 hours. On Friday evening there are two blocks available, for which you can also register as an individual participant this year.
Unfortunately, we cannot foresee how everything around the Covid-19 will develop at the moment. But we are going to cycle anyway! If it turns out in (early) January that the event cannot take place in February, we have a plan B to cycle on different dates and at a different (outside) location in Rotterdam.
In connection with the measures surrounding Covid-19, a maximum of 130 bicycles per block will be available this year, so that the bicycles are each 1.5 meters apart. In order to make the event run smoothly and to minimize the risk of the spread of Covid-19, extra measures will also be taken on site during the event. These can also be viewed in the FAQ page on our website.

Sophia Mother and Child Center
During this anniversary edition we will dedicate ourselves to the Sophia Mother and Child Center. After all, being born healthy cannot be taken for granted. Every year some 1,400 children die around birth. The Sophia Children's Hospital takes a groundbreaking step by treating children before birth, in order to increase their chances. Do you support the little ones?
