The Capitals of East Anglia

319km cycling event starting from Girton, Cambridge. Controls at Ipswich, Dunwich, Norwich, Watton and Ely.

A brand new 300km PBP qualifier from Cambridge that heads far out into the ‘wilds’ of Suffolk, dips a toe in the North Sea at Dunwich, visits ‘civilised’ Norfolk, and heads home via the “Ship of the Fens” at Ely.

The route visits capitals of ancient kingdoms, regions and tribes, as well as capitals of religion and learning, all in East Anglia. The route starts with a bit of a climb that won't trouble any ‘uplanders’ and then rolls steadily from there to the coast along deserted lanes and quiet roads via the old trading port of Ipswich, to dip a toe in the sea at ancient Dunwich. The return heads to the bustling be-castled cathedral city of Norwich, and then across the flatness of the Fens to pass the doors of Ely Cathedral, before heading back to the sleepy spires of Cambridge. We will be providing our usual hospitality at the finish, included in the entry price.
