Suffolk Coast

Sunday 16 Sep 2018


Ride Photo

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


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.

If any friends or family of the cyclists would like a tour of Glemham Hall at 10.00am on the day of the ride, please book in advance by phoning Donna at Glemham Hall on 01728 746704. Tour lasts approx. 1h15min. Tickets: £10.00 per person

"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.
