  New for 2012 - the popular CTC Ruff Stuff event has been expanded to three events - 10 miles, 25 miles and 40 miles.

These events will be run on old railway lines, byways, bridle ways and minor roads starting and finishing at Reepham College NR10 4JT MAP HERE and taking in Aylsham, Blickling, Banningham, Corpusty, Themelthorpe, Lenwade and Cawston.

Parking will be available at the HQ and there will be free drinks and food at the finish.

The routes are challenging, so pick the distance you can manage in under five hours - but the weather is looking better!

Suitable bikes - the route is very rough in places with soft going and mud a possibility - so mountain bikes, cyclo-cross bikes or touring bikes with good mudguard clearance are required. You will need tools, spare tube and your pump.


It's been a great year for cycling and we can keep the fun going - meet folks like
you who enjoy riding their bikes.

Public roads and rights of way will not be closed and participants must ride safely and follow the Highway Code. Take in to account the variety of riding styles and abilities, and the likelihood that you will meet with groups of cyclists along the way.

Watch out for horses, runners and walkers.

So let's be cheerful and polite and greet everybody with a "Good Morning". And don't forget to thank people who stop to let you pass.

The routes will be signed and marshals we be at key points. Route sheets will be available at the HQ .
