Sigma Sports Suffolk Classic - 30th March

March 30, 2019

30, 64 and 84 mile routes

Starts from Newmarket Racecourse

If you paid attention during GCSE geography you would assume this cycle ride would be flat based on its location, but it’s far from it. Ok, there are no killer climbs, no real leg breakers, but if you tackle the long route of the Suffolk Spring Classic you’ll be gaining over 1000 metres of elevation which equates to an awful lot of little lumps and bumps.

Suffolk Sunrise - Sunday 19th May

May 18, 2019

The stunning backdrop of Framlingham College and Framlingham Castle at the start of the Suffolk Sunrise 100 bike ride is a sight to behold. Set off with over 900 riders on this popular charity sportive and you will soon be exploring the country lanes of Suffolk which were just made for cycling with little traffic, superb countryside and coastal scenery.

With three route options the Cool 42 mile route is great if you’re a newbie to cycling or if you’ve been out of action for a while. The more challenging Classic 65 mile and Champion at 102 mile routes are ideal if you’re an experienced or regular Sportive rider.

Expect a great day in the saddle with the team on this Action Medical Research cycling event with first class support throughout the day.
