We ride along the quiet roads between Ipswich, Essex and Hamilton.

Short ride 12 miles is mainly in Ipswich/Hamilton.

Medium ride 15 miles adds to the short by going to the edge of Essex then back to join the short.

Long ride 18 miles adds to the medium by going through scenic Essex then back to join the medium.

Each has its share of a few short easy climbs.  

All riders welcome.
