200km cycling event starting from Carlton Colville,Lowestoft, Suffolk. Controls at Gislingham, Bawdsey Quay, Orford and Carlton Colville., plus 4 information controls.

Try something different in a unique peaceful and gentle corner of the British Isles! Quiet country lanes, including through both Tunstall and Dunwich forests, picturesque villages, and the attractive market towns of Framlingham, with it’s castle, and Eye and the windmill at Saxted Green and the famous Snape maltings. Parts of the ride will be on Suffolk Coastal cycle route
There’s also a bit of culture! Pretty Orford (also with a castle) with its World War 2 mysteries and Dunwich, with its intriguing history of being the medieval capital of East Anglia and its churches under the sea, the bells of which it is alleged can be heard when the sea is rough.
