Swaffham Scorpion

106km cycling event starting from Swaffham, Norfolk. Controls at Norton Cafe, Walsingham Shrine, plus 3 information controls.

A lovely 106k ride around some of the villages not usually seen when travelling on the more major roads of mid Norfolk. This ride does dispel the idea that Norfolk is completely flat- Ice, will offer a gritted route

There are some bumpy bits to navigate adding up to some 730m of ascent by the time you return to Swaffham. Generally quiet back roads, care should be taken for oncoming traffic on near single track lanes and also on crossing busy A roads. Excellent mid-way cafe stop in Walsingham is one of the few fuel stops to be had on the way, the route sheet will highlight the half dozen shops likely to be open on a Sunday. We will provide a donation-welcomed free light breakfast at the Community Centre before the 9am start with soup and sandwiches at the finish. Obtain a verification sticker at the half way point and fill in your info control answers to your Brevet card. Please advise of your inability to attend the event via email before the ride commences, also text the number on your Brevet card should you need to abandon mid-course. If you are using a satnav to get to the community centre, please use the postcode PE377RD else you will be sent down a blind alley.
