50-mile Led Ride

NEW for 2018

The ride was led by experienced members of Mildenhall Cycling Club Judith & David Robb.

 

Leading a ride from the Festival seemed to offer an opportunity to show visitors some of Suffolk's lovely cycling country, and to demonstrate that the county is not quite as flat as people often imagine. We wanted to take in some interesting gradients, so we picked out a few of our favourites, including Ousden, Sommerton and of course Hartest. This led us nicely to Maglia Rosso (Cycle Centre and cafe) in time for lunch.

 

Unfortunately the weather deteriorated in the afternoon, so it was waterproofs on and heads down for the slightly shorter ride back. This ride was a good way to get to know some of the diverse range of cyclists who attend the Festival every year, we enjoyed it, and we hope they did too.
