After many years supporting racing cyclists I decided that I would like to develop the touring side of cycling to enjoy our lovely countryside and invite people to join in. Often people do not cycle because they feel that they have to be dressed in lycra and have new specialist machines.
In 2011, with the support of Sustainable Bungay and the Beccles and Bungay Cycle Strategy, I organised a series of rides throughout the summer. The rides were well attended and took people through lanes at a leisurely pace. They were particularly popular during National Bike Week
This year’s Godric Way ride on 22nd July starts at the Library to raise funds. You do not need to be sponsored unless you wish to be. There will be refreshments at the start and finish and also a coffee stop en route. 25 miles – with several short cuts back to Bungay! Keep an eye out for our Car-Free Day cycle events on 22nd September.
