The Uk Cycling Events' Classic Series is designed with all riders in mind. With four routes to choose from and nothing too technical this is a perfect event for both experienced riders and anyone new to the sport.
This is one of two special events in conjunction with Uk Cycling Events' Charity Partners at Alzheimer’s Research UK. So not only can you join a beautiful ride with a friendly atmosphere, but whilst you're doing it you can raise money for a brilliant cause.
This event helps raise awareness for the fantastic work Alzheimer’s Research UK does and goes a long way into making breakthroughs for Dementia treatment and care possible.
All four routes wind through the historic county of Suffolk and take a relatively flat route as you take in the vast array of agricultural land and rolling pastures. The routes on offer are perfect for anyone wishing to come and ride with us for the first time or for someone looking for a faster sportive for the year.
After a tough but stunning day out on the road you will be well rewarded for all your efforts as you cross the finish line. Everyone will of course receive their finisher's medal, but also you will receive beer from Freedom Brewery and other goodies from other event partners.
So sign up for a wonderful, professionally run cycling experience with a friendly atmosphere.
