The Silly Suffolk 160

160km cycling event starting from Carlton Colville,Lowestoft, Suffolk. Controls at Thornham Magna, Orford, Dunwich and Carlton Colville., plus 2 information controls.

Lovely route with a few slight ‘upward’ surprises but there are no hills to speak of. Try something a bit different in a unique peaceful and gentle corner of the British Isles. Quiet lanes, parts of the suffolk Sandlings AONB, the Suffolk churches and Suffolk Coastal cycle routes and Dunwich, Tunstall forests, sleepy picturesque villages and the pretty market towns of Eye and Framlingham (with a castle) and the windmill at Saxted Green.

A bit of culture too! Dunwich with it’s intriguing history of being the medieval capital of East Anglia and churches under the sea, the bells of which it is alleged can be heard when the sea is rough.
