NEW ROUTES for 2024!! A beautiful 60 or 30 mile ride in Norfolk's lovely countryside. Starting from City Hall and taking in the edge of the Broads, touching the coast on the 60, while the 30 mile loops inland taking in a stretch alongside the Bure Valley Railway, before reaching bucolic Ranworth, and then a triumphant return to food, drink and a medal at the Finish - Lower School by the Cathedral.

The event is registered with British Cycling - please see British Cycling's How to Ride in a Group here. Social distancing and other safety measures are here
