Road ride example


A 60 mile loop incorporating quiet Suffolk roads and beautiful villages.  Not a huge amount of climbing but some lovely small elevations and open rural landscapes to enjoy.  Ideal for a stop off for a cuppa and cake at Emmetts then push on through to Framlingham where you can enjoy a choice of cafes to refuel before returning to Orford for a recovery treat at Pump Street!

Off road cycling in Tunstall Forest


Aside from numerous bridle paths around the area there is some excellent single track and off road cycling close by.

Rendlesham offers some excellent waymarked trails for family cycling and just enjoying a forest by bike.

Tunstall Forest is  a real hidden gem for keener mountain bikers.  Tracks created from the enduro racing years ago have made way for  miles of single track through beautiful quiet forest.  The Viking Trail is a waymarked trail of nearly 10 miles long with pretty straight forward cycling with some optional, more challenging sections.

There is a also an extensive dirt jump park with some excellent dirt jump and freeride trails in Sudbourne just a short ride form Orford. 

There is also a variety of drops and jumps dotted around the trails. This really is worth checking out if you enjoy some off road cycling.
