Claydon Cruise

Saturday 31st August at 10.00am This is what time the ride will set off. It’s best to get to the starting point at least 15 minutes beforehand to avoid missing the start.

Starting Point & Postcode
Outside Westbourne Library (opposite Sherrington Park) Sherrington Road IP1 4HT
Overall Duration On a long ride, it’s sometimes good to have a little break in the middle, or maybe a catch up at the beginning or end to keep it sociable. This means that the overall ride duration may be longer than the actual cycling time.
1 hours 45 mins  (1 hours 15 mins cycling)
Bike Type You probably don’t want to drag your road bike across bumpy trails. Maybe you want to make the most of the suspension on your mountain bike. This helps you match your ride to your bike.

Sky Ride Local in Ipswich

If you’re fairly confident on your bike and ready to broaden your cycling horizons, our Steady rides are ideal. At a comfortable pace, and possibly with some modest hills along the way, rides take place on mainly quiet roads with plenty of sights along the way. Rides are between 6 and 20 miles long, at a moderate pace of between 7 and 10 miles an hour.

A gentle ride from Westbourne Library to Claydon and back in an eight mile loop. The quiet roads and traffic-free tracks are great for thick-wheeled bikes.

Rider Comments on the Route

  • Jan Jukes Tuesday 7th October With such a large group cycling on roads, I feel it is better to divide into a least 2 groups to enable motorists to overtake.
