Starting and finishing in the beautiful City of Norwich, this ride takes you through some perfect cycling country with quiet roads and picturesque villages.

From the start in the central Norwich the route first heads north towards Reepham. The short route cuts east towards Coltishall, and the medium route loops back past beautiful Blickling Hall (while the 100-milers head up to the coast) before returning to the Finish in the 'fine city'.

Voted number 1 in The Independent's 10 Best Cycling Events for 2012!
