NEW ROUTE for 2024!! An iconic (and very beautiful) 100 mile ride around Norfolk. Starting from City Hall, heading north past Blickling Hall, taking in the market town of Holt, before reaching the coast at Blakeney, then dropping inland on the journey eastwards through the wonderful Felbrigg Estate, followed by a flight through the Broads, passing Horsey Mill, and of course a triumphant return to the Finish at Norwich Lower School where food, drink and a medal await within site of the magnificent Cathedral.

The event is registered with British Cycling - please read the current British Cycling How to Ride in a Group here. and Sportive etiquette which you can find here. Social distancing and other measures are here

"I was so impressed by every aspect of this event and just wanted to say a huge thank-you to all of those involved - the Marshalls, the motorcyclists, the starters, the welcome committee at the finish, the local venues for refreshments and all of the countless and unseen volunteers that put this event together and made it such a magnificent day." S.N
