This ride has now passed.

We hope you all had a great day on the Norwich 60/30 ride. We look forward to seeing you on another event soon!


New routes for 2019! The best of Norfolk - to celebrate 25 years of cycling around Norfolk, the 57 mile route heads past the Broads to Horsey Mill by the coast, while the 28 mile ride visits Ranworth and crosses Horning Ferry (your rider number is your ticket for the ferry!), then all rides share the Finish in Norwich with live music, beer tent and food close to the Cathedral. Yes, that's right folks, the mileages this year are 57 and 28 miles - please bear this in mind.

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