It is an enjoyable ride around the beautiful Suffolk countryside.  We will be running the three different distances again, the 25km, 50km and 100km, with all the routes starting and finishing at the Blackbourne Centre in Elmswell near Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.   We will have similar refreshments available at the centre as we did before then pandemic, which were very much geared to cyclists and their partners!
