Country lanes, sandy tracks, rooty singletrack, open heath, forest fireroads, vast wetlands, mud, loam, gravel: all to be found on one route. We start from the historic Snape Maltings, a 19th century Barley Maltings turned modern concert venue on the river Alde, we have half time teas and coffees there too before heading north.
The route takes in Tunstall, Rendlesham and Dunwich forests as well as areas of Minsmere, an RSPB reserve with huge biodiversity. This route is quite unlike any other on our calendar and well worth the drive if you’re not local, covering 100km of the finest mixed trails in East Anglia will make your weekend.
One of our longest gravel rides at just over 100km due to the flatness of the terrain so we should still finish at around lunchtime. We do a figure of 8 from Snape Maltings going down to the cost at Orford before heading into the tracks in the Rendlesham Forest. We then head along the coast up to Dunwich before heading back for a pint at the finish on the tracks inland.
Start Time : From 7.45am
Finish time : Between 12pm and 2pm
