The Silly Suffolk

Description

160km cycling event starting from Carlton Colville,Lowestoft, Suffolk. Controls at Thornham Magna, Orford, Dunwich and Carlton Colville., plus 2 information controls.



For seasoned riders this may not be the most challenging of rides. It's not the Fens so there might be a few slight 'upward' surprises but there are no hills to speak of. But try something a bit different in a unique peaceful and gentle corner of the British Isles. Quiet lanes, parts of the suffolk Sandlings AONB, the Suffolk churches and Suffolk Coastal cycle routes and Dunwich - one of the controls - and Tunstall forests, sleepy picturesque villages and the pretty maket towns of Eye and Framlingham Framlingham, with a castle, and the windmill at Saxted Green. A bit of culture too! Dunwich with it's intriguing history of being the medieval capital of East Anglia and churches under the sea, the bells of which it is allegded can be heard when the sea is rough. also, a control at picturesque Orford (on the quay), which has an interesting World War 2 history. I get many compliments on what a lovely route it is DO ENTER!
