Only a dozen or so riders made it out for the 200km edition of the Silly Suffolk that was organised by John Thompson of VC Baracchi. Iceni Velo managed a group of three, and we set off just before 7:30 on back roads that were very wet from considerable overnight rain. We enjoyed good weather and even a nice dose of sun, although our bikes and legs got fairly filthy from the spray kicked up off the road.
Always good to have a bit of sun at the start of a long ride!
We first had to head a long way west, collecting a receipt each at the Londis in Gislingham.
After a bit of a slog heading down to Bawdsey, we were able to head up the coast with a pretty decent tailwind.
We were all quite glad to be back at the HQ, just as the sun was setting - although I still had over 20km more to ride as I'd parked in Loddon.
