Cycling On The Suffolk Coast

The fresh air and relatively flat landscape make The Suffolk Coast ideal for cycling, whatever your ability. One of our favourite routes is The Suffolk Coastal Cycle Route, a circular signed route that takes you from Felixstowe to Dunwich on quiet roads along the coast, before looping inland via the market towns of Framlingham and Woodbridge. The full route is 88 miles (142 km) long, ideal for weekend tours, and there are many opportunities for detours and short cuts to make day rides including off-road tracks in three forests. Much of the route lies within the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

A route pack includes maps based on the Ordnance Survey ‘Landranger’ series, and three forest maps based on the ‘Explorer’ series. There is useful information about places of interest along the way, plus accommodation and campsite listings.

The pack is £4.99 and can be bought from Tourist Information Centres in the area or by post (£4.99 plus £1.00 p&p) from:

The Suffolk Coast and Heaths Unit, Dock Lane, Melton, Woodbridge, Suffolk, IP12 1PE.
