Black Shuck Sportive - new Twilight event at the thursford collection


We have moved to a Saturday afternoon.. Scheduled start times to get you back for Sunset where we will have a BBQ and Entertainment.

The Black Shuck Sportive: Can you keep the the beast of the North Norfolk Coast line at bay?

As Legend has it. The huge black hell hound roamed the North Norfolk Hills bringing death to any poor soul (cyclist) that happened to meet it!   The secret of surviving an encounter with this hound was to not to stop on the inclines of the North Norfolk Coast line.

With the History lesson over, this cycling event is geared to all cyclists.  This event has now involved from having to be a mountain goat to now that you can be any type of cyclist to take part.

There are three routes of approx 30 miles each + a family friendly 5 or 10 mile routes to get the under 16's and their families out on their bikes.

The routes have a very good mix of beautiful countryside rolling hills, unspoilt views.

The Thursford Collection will also host the Feed-zone which again will be the normal Norfolk Cycling Events Standard.  Lots of food and drink!

This is very much a family friendly event so if your family doesn't ride they can come along and wander around the Thursford collection, have a go on the rides or play in the play area.

Children enter the museum Free, adults £5.50. all rides are £2.00 and £1.00 of that will go to the Break Charity.

The Thursford Collection will have a 'posh BBQ'  and the bar will be open.

We will be selling fresh coffee, tea and home made cakes.

We are also hoping to have a live band / music with fireworks to finish the event in style.
