Suffolk is a fairly flat county with a lovely coastline making it ideal for cycling. There's miles of open countryside to explore on quiet country roads and off road paths with a variety of well signed local and national routes to follow.
One of the highlights is the lovely town of Bury St Edmunds with its historic ruined abbey (right).

There are several National Cycle Network signed routes in the county many of which have been mapped and can be viewed and downloaded below.
