30th March 2019

If you paid attention during GCSE geography you would assume this cycle ride would be flat based on its location, but it’s far from it. Ok, there are no killer climbs, no real leg breakers, but if you tackle the long route of the Suffolk Spring Classic you’ll be gaining over 1000 metres of elevation which equates to an awful lot of little lumps and bumps.


Visiting the three counties of Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex the routes navigate around the towns of Haverhill, Saffron Walden and Sudbury thus avoiding areas of congestion allowing you to enjoy the free-flowing traffic free roads. From one idyllic village to the next between the high hedgerows and farmland your cares will simply drift away as you cruise around this sleepy part of England.


Pick a package and challenge yourself!


  • EPIC (80 miles) - £40 
  • STANDARD (64 miles) - £40
  • SHORT (30 miles) - £31


  • Online entry closes on Wednesday 27th March 2019 at 1pm
