The Crafted Classique- 30th August


A brand new sportive is launching this August 30th, just over the border in Ipswich, and we thought that you might be interested to learn a little more.

Part of Ipswich Cycling Weekend 30th August

You can choose to take-on either the 100mile or 100km route through some of Suffolk's most stunning countryside. It's a challenging ride, with a total ascent of 876.64m and a maximum elevation of 59.0m.

There's a complimentary espresso at the start and, once you've taken on the challenge, you'll be greeted with a free refreshing local Adnams and delicious hog roast.

You can sign up for the event at the weekend's website: Ipswich Cycling Weekend

You can also take part in their Facebook competition for a chance at winning a framed, limited edition poster signed by a UK top elite cyclist along with two or five passes to the VIP area of the Ipswich Coastal Grand Prix - the final of the British Cycling Elite Road Series: Facebook competition here
