An exciting new cycling event is coming to Southwold – including gruelling off-road sections for the “brave and foolhardy”.

The Southwold Cycle Sportive, on Sunday April 8, will have routes and distances to suit all ages including 75, 50 and 25 mile routes as well as a family friendly ride.

However, this is a sportive with a difference.

In tribute to the Paris-Roubaix race, held on the same day, experienced cyclists will be given the chance to take on five optional ‘Roubaix Challenge’ shortcuts along rough, muddy paths and tracks.

The ride, organised by Pedal Revolution and Adnams, is a not-for-profit event with proceeds benefiting local charities and bike projects. The route will be fully signposted with a mobile mechanic and drink stops along the way,

You can enter the ride by visiting any Pedal Revolution shop or by visiting www.pedalrevolution.co.uk/events.
