Ipswich to Colchester
This route takes you through the Suffolk countryside along National Cycle route 1.

You then continue west through the countryside to Hadleigh with lovely views of the River Brett. Shortly after leaving Hadleigh there is a nice off road stretch along the Hadleigh Railway Walk taking you through Raydon Great Wood. You then continue to Colchester on country roads passing through High Woods Country Park as you go. The final stretch takes you across the River Colne and past Colchester castle before finishing near the tourist information centre.
