Suffolk Cycling Tour

Flesh out general stuff about cycle routes, off road routes, better drivers, YHAs and campsites all good, flat, varied, friendly.


This has always been my point of arrival, exhausted and tired after a 116 mile cycle ride, the Dunwich Dynamo, overnight, direct from Hackney in east London.

Dunwich has a long history - used to be a major port - declined over the years, not least due to coastal erosion.

Dunwich Forest

There are cyclable routes through Dunwich Forest, allowing you to avoid the main road as you head south.

Snape Maltings

It looks nice, looked nicer a few years ago before the Gentrification. Now there's lots of expensive flats on-site, bars and shops, as well as a world class classical music venue.

Aldeburgh to Thorpeness

Walk: Blaxhall to Aldeburgh

Orford Ness

Fascinating history - from glorified pig pen to cutting edge nuclear research laboratory, and now, wildlife sanctuary and museum.
