EVENT DATE

Sunday 4th August 2013

LOCATION

Newmarket, Suffolk

EVENT SUMMARY

A new event for 2013, three challenging rural road routes starting from the Animal Health Trust event village in Kentford, near Newmarket.

“The event should be a great family day out with other cycle-themed events taking place at the AHT HQ, where there is ample off road parking, a coffee shop, children’s play area and lawned areas suitable for summer picnicking. The three rides all set off from AHT HQ and take in quiet rolling roads and pretty villages, passing many village stores and pubs where you can take a break and re-fuel. The longer rides take in some challenging hills dispelling the myth that Suffolk is flat!”

ROUTE INFORMATION

3 route options are available –

  • 25 mile – Terrier
  • 50 mile Whippet
  • 80 mile Greyhound

“The dogs’ is a challenging sportive that we’ve designed to take in some of Suffolk’s loveliest countryside whilst raising funds for The Animal Health Trust (AHT). There are three great routes to choose from with a mixture of rolling hills, flat scenic roads and pretty villages.”
