The popular Suffolk Sunrise event will have a new route this year, taking it away from the coast.
The May 8 charity sportive, which can attract up to 1,300 riders, still begins at Framlingham College, from where you can choose the 35, 60 or 102 mile routes.
From Framlingham the short route sticks to a small loop via Cretingham, and Peasenhall, while the 60-miler covers the short route and then moves on to Stradbroke, Eye and Debenham before looping back to Framlingham College.
If you have the legs, the 102-miler takes in the first two routes, but also heads north-east towards Blythburgh and Bungay. The three routes are highlighted below.
The event is quite costly at £38, but that does not stop Suffolk’s cyclists from turning out in force, raising money for the organisers Action Medical Research.
And as well as raising cash for a children’s medical charity, you’ll be paying for first-rate support and back-up. Signage is excellent, and the feed stations dangerously good as well!
More information and registration details are available from the Suffolk Sunrise.
