Cambridge to Norwich

Sunday 28 Sep 2014


Ride Photo

A very popular new ride in 2011 and now back for the fourth time in 2014! Starting at Coldham's Common in Cambridge the route heads east through an autumnal landscape of fenland, patchwork fields and even a few hills! The finish is at Earlham Park in Norwich - with sports massage, beer tent, great food and live music.

"You organised an excellent route between Cambridge and Norwich, the route was very quiet and went through some lovely villages and countryside. Well done!" C. D.

"The event is one of the best cycle events I have done (and it was last year and the year before too). The route was lovely, the signs clear, the marshalls helpful and all the stuff waiting at the end also wonderful. I'm looking forward to the same again next year." P.C.

"I would just like to give your team a big thank for the Cambridge to Norwich cycle, I thought the route was really well thought out and the level of organization was excellent." D.R.
