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 south around Rendlesham Forest then through pretty lanes to Butley and on to Snape Maltings - the short route heads back to the finish. The long route continues through pretty countryside to Westleton and the coast at Dunwich for lunch. After open heathland and the valley of the river Alde the ride finishes back at Glemham Hall where you'll find refreshments and receive a medal.
