All-day ride in Norfolk & Suffolk – RIDE FULL

October 11 @ 8:45 am - 7:00 pm

Update: sorry, no places left on this ride

Keith Tremeer leads around the B-roads & country lanes of the Norfolk & Suffolk countryside. The route passes through quaint, laid-back East Anglian villages – with great food along the way

We will meet at 8:45am in the carpark at Tesco Milton – please have your bike fully fueled, ready to set off at 9:00am. After a 1¼hr ride we stop for breakfast at the Gardeners Rest Coffee Shop near Downham Market

It’s then eastwards towards Swaffham, before we swing southeast through Watton, Old Buckenham & Fressingfield. Just under 2 hours more biking and we arrive at our scheduled lunch stop: the White Horse Inn near Badingham for a traditional Sunday roast lunch (or choose from pub favourites such as steak & kidney pudding or fish & chips – there are also several options for vegetarians). Those with the room can choose from dessert options such as Mars bar cheesecake & ice cream or Eton mess – or consult the ice cream menu

After lunch we head south through Framlingham (refueling stop @115 miles), then west through Monks Eleigh, before arriving in Lavenham ~1¼hr after lunch. We’ll have a stop here for an ice cream and/or drink if our energy levels need replenishing

For the final 1¾hr leg we head south-west, through Great Yeldham and on to Finchingfield. We then turn north, through Steeple Bumpstead & Burrough Green, before finally turning south to the Fourwentways Service Station, just off the A11, where the outing will end

We’ll cover ~200 miles during the day, with roughly six hours in the saddle. Depending on the number of lunch courses, we should be back in Cambridge before dark, having had our fill of remarkable roads, stunning scenery and great grub

Full members only    In line with the current Covid restrictions, the number of participants is strictly limited – and all places have now been allocated
