Where to Ride

We might be a bit biased, but we reckon that Constable Country and the surrounding region offers some of the very best leisure cycling in the UK! We're based on the edge of Dedham Vale AONB, and very close to Suffolk Coast and Heaths AONB - Britain's driest and sunniest AONBs.

The gently rolling countryside and quiet rural lanes are leisure-cyclist friendly. The smattering of historic medieval villages and market towns offer plenty of opportunities for interesting pit-stops and overnight stays. And the abundance of water (be it rivers, estuaries or the sea) adds a certain magic to the whole experience.

We've lived here for 25 years now, and we love sharing our detailed local knowledge to help you plan the perfect cycling getaway - whether you hire a bike for the day or book a multi-day cycling holiday with us. To whet your appetite, here are some of our favourite local "circular" rides (complete with downloadable gpx files to use in your GPS Device or Smartphone App):-
