Join us for a beautiful Summer day's cycling around the heathland, fields and coast of the Suffolk countryside.

THIS IS THE PAGE FOR THE 35 MILE AND 65 MILE ROUTES TO ENTER THE 100 MILE RIDE, PLEASE CLICK HERE

Starting and finishing at the elegant Elizabethan mansion of Glemham Hall next to A12, there’s a choice of two scenic routes of 35 & 65 miles. All routes head north through pretty countryside and villages before dividing - the short route then swings east towards Dunwich on the coast, while the longer one continues north to reach Covehithe with its curious ‘Russian Doll’ churches. Following the coast, the long route rejoins the short route near Dunwich, crossing open heathland to finish back at Glemham Hall where you'll find massage, refreshments, live music and a bar.


"Thank you do much for a fantastic day, the day went so well & the organisation was spot on. The route signs & marshals were perfect, would not hesitate to book further events." S. B.
