The Crafted Classique, in association with British Cycling, returns for its seventh year with 55km, 100km and 100mile courses through the picturesque Suffolk countryside. Savour a complimentary coffee and a bacon roll on the start line before taking in fabulous views on this timed event. Reward your efforts with a delicious burger and a refreshing beer on the waterfront.
