Suffolk’s Wild Coast, with RSPB Minsmere as the beating heart. A network of beautiful wild spaces just waiting to be explored. RSPB Suffolk Go Wild Sportive is the best way to get out on your bike and find these hidden gems. Country lanes, sandy tracks, rooty singletrack, open heath, forest fireroads, vast wetlands, mud, loam, gravel: all to be found on route. The route is perfect gravel bike terrain but suits almost any kind of bike that is home off road – from CX race bikes to bouncy full sussers or your favourite old hardtail, the choice is yours. Just make sure that whatever you choose to ride you don’t mind if it gets wet, muddy and dusty and that it is up to the task. The RSPB Minsmere nature reserve is one of the most bio-diverse places in the whole UK, the route will take you through beautiful woodlands and open heathland, internationally important wetland habitats and rolling Suffolk farmland. Our aim is for you to enjoy the wild spaces and hidden gems of the Suffolk coast. You will be passing (amongst other places) 7 RSPB Nature reserves, 3 forestry woodlands, multiple SSSIs and beautiful Suffolk villages. Three trails are available, 10km, 50km and the full 100km. All start and finish at RSPB Minsmere where there is a café and shop plus family friendly activities, waymarked walking routes and more wildlife than you can shake a stick at. This is an event where the whole family is welcome, either riding the family friendly short route together or waiting for one of your clan to return from the medium or long route while you all enjoy the amazing reserve. What You Get: • Bespoke Finishers Medal • Event Photography • Free lunch for the 65 mile riders • Full Route Signage • Route Downloads • Event Catering • Broom wagon and emergency bike repairs ?• First Aid at Event Village Pre-booking is essential.
