Definitely not a sportive, the Dunwich Dynamo is nevertheless one of the 'must ride' events of the summer calendar for many cyclists. This year sees the 200km ride travel from London Fields in Hackney to Dunwich on the Suffolk Coast.
The Dynamo is an unsupported ride that gets bigger every year. From its origins in 1992 when a handful of riders took part to the nearly 3,000 riders in 2017, the "Dun Run" or "DD" as regulars call it, is becoming more and more popular. It is roughly 200km, although we are told by a recent rider that his Garmin recorded it as 193km. This is one of the classic rides of the British summer calendar and the original night ride that is now being copied by so many others.
