Dunwich Dynamo

Fancy riding this year’s Dunwich Dynamo, on the night of Saturday 4th to Sunday 5th of July?
Rob Hale is hoping to get a group of Cambridge CC riders to join him on this classic overnight ride from London Fields in Hackney to Dunwich on the Suffolk coast.
Starting at 8pm, it is a turn-up-and-go event of 116 miles, aiming to arrive at the coast by early morning. Recent events have seen up to 2000 riders.
The plan is to travel by train to London on Saturday afternoon, arriving at London Fields by 7pm.
Return to Cambridge by train will be a challenge as the train operator is imposing tight restrictions, so Rob anticipates riding the 80 miles back from Dunwich, making a round trip of 200 miles.
There is some basic information here, and a link to the train restrictions here .
Those that are interested, email Rob Hale.

Hunstanton Clubrun. £90 raised for donation to MIND.

Ian Hopkin will be leading a Intermediate paced ride to Hunstanton and back on Saturday 27 June if you would like to join him.
Currently 12 members have expressed interest.
This will be a 150 mile round trip but there will be the option of taking the train back from Kings Lynn.
Leaving Addenbrookes at 7am, planned stops on the way out are: -
28m - CJ's at Lakenheath
45m - Oxburgh Hall Cafe
75m - Hunstanton (refreshments in exchange for charity donation).
and on the return journey: -
32m - Sunshine Cafe at Downham Market
60m - Twenty Pence Garden Centre at Wilburton.
All plans can go awry, so bring emergency provisions. It would be good if all riders would wear club kit.
