Starting at the White Hart in Boxford this is an easy ride of 33.3km which journeys south to Bures and then follows a quiet road north through the village of Lemarsh, giving some stunning views across the Stour Valley. The route passes a number of country pubs and takes the rider into the attractive market town of Sudbury where there are plenty of potential café stops. It then makes it way to its conclusion near the village of Brent Eleigh and the traditional Bike Club ending at Café Como.
Hadleigh, Felixstowe, Harwich Loop
Starting at the Pedal House Bike Shop in Hadleigh High Street this route takes you along quiet country roads and cycle paths to Ipswich where it uses mostly light traffic roads, passes through the dock area and eventually leads to the old Felixstowe Road. Arriving in Felixstowe the Harwich Harbour Ferry transports you across the Stour Estuary to Harwich. The route then loops back along quiet lanes to Hadleigh. There is a nice café at the Felixstowe ferry landing point and another on the old Ha’Penny Pier in Harwich, both worth a stop. A fantastic, easy riding route 73.7 km in length.
