A beautiful classic 100 mile ride around Norfolk. Starting from City Hall and taking in the edge of the Broads, Horsey Mill, the coast (and some hills!) all the way to Cley, and Blakeney, then a new route through Holt to Blickling Hall before food, drink and a medal back at the finish - Lower School by the Cathedral.
