Social Cycle Ride in Thetford Forest

Have you ever wanted to explore the scenic landscapes of the Brecks on two wheels?

Celebrate the Brecks Outdoor Festival with this fun and friendly group cycle ride, starting and ending at Brandon Country Park. During the event, you will join volunteers from Mildenhall Cycling Club, who will guide you on a leisurely group ride through the park and Thetford Forest.

This event welcomes all levels of experience, from group bike ride beginners, to more regular riders. Cycling is a fantastic way to explore your local area, while supporting your physical and mental wellbeing.

On the day, the distance and pace will be determined by the group. Supported by volunteers, and with no pressure to go further then you are comfortable with, this event will allow all participants to enjoy a forest bike ride suited to their own level. Following the ride, the group will gather at the Brandon Country Park café with those who wish to join and purchase a refreshment.

This event is hosted as part of the Brecks Outdoor Festival, a two week celebration of the landscapes and heritage of the Norfolk and Suffolk Brecks. The Brecks Outdoor Festival (7th-22nd September) is hosted by the Brecks Fen Edge and Rivers Landscape Partnership Scheme with thanks to the support of the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
