Haverhill CC CB9er 24th May 2020

Saw this advertised and thought it might be interesting to some...I might enter it.

Cycle Sportive , Suffolk – Sunday, 24 May 2020

The Haverhill Cycling Club CB9er sportive offers three routes through East Anglia, taking in three counties, Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire. Routes of 29-mile, 59-mile and 99-mile have been planned to accommodate riders of all abilities.

The routes are largely along quiet country lanes through picturesque and gently rolling countryside, passing through delightful small towns and villages such as Ashdon, Thaxted, Bardfield and Wickhambrook.
