Haven't seen a thread about this one. Who's in? Anyone who's done it before have any info worth sharing?

I did the 100 miles of Suffolk Lanes last year. A very pretty route, lots of potential stops for refreshment, good food at the HQ at Bildeston.

I think I've done, over the years, all 3 distances.

They're nice rides and CC Sudbury look after you well at HQ.

Not on our list this year as it's very laney- which equates to pretty villages and a pleasant tour.... and a very slow ride (for us).

Doing the 200. Did the 100k two years ago as a wind-down ride for LEL. Classy well-run event as
usual by CC Sudbury with a big village hall hq and good value refreshments. The 100k route was
pleasantly laney and quiet.

Toying with the idea making it an overnight ECE by GPS starting in the early evening to simulate
the PBP start. But will see if I have the motivation to do so. Or just ride the 40 miles over to the
start in the early Sat morning and then to some train station after the finish for a shorter ECE.
