Join us for a beautiful Summer day's cycling in the tranquil Suffolk countryside to raise money for St Elizabeth Hospice in Ipswich.
Starting and finishing at the elegant Elizabethan mansion of Glemham Hall, there’s a choice of two routes of 35 & 60 miles. Both head north through pretty countryside and villages before splitting at Sibton.
The short route then swings east towards Dunwich on the coast, while the longer continues north to reach Covehithe with its curious ‘Russian Doll’ churches.
Following the coast south, the long route rejoins the short route near Dunwich, crossing open heathland back to finish back at Glemham Hall.
If any friends or family of the cyclists would like a tour of Glemham Hall at 10.30am on the day of the ride, please book in advance by phoning Donna at Glemham on 01728 746704.
