We all set New Year's resolutions - and as a cyclist, one of yours will be to get out and ride more, right? Well, why not make good early practice of your new-found pledge and sign up to our first sportive of the year? Both Standard and Epic routes are kept relatively brief for those that have been training fastidiously through winter, though, will be able to enjoy the sprawling seasonal countryside of Suffolk as you pass through one sleepy village after another. Looping around in an anti-clockwise circle, you'll dip as far south as the eastern edges of Haverhill. It's a straightforward first few miles - albeit slightly uphill - until the Epic riders go off onto their own small loop that passes through Brinkley, Balsham and West Wickham, among other villages, before re-joining the main loop. Continuing to head south alongside the River Stour, the course turns once you hit Kedington and starts to head home. One or two prolonged climbs are exposed on the final straight back home, dipping up and down as you pass through Stradishall and Lidgate among other villages, but these hills aren't substantial and a great start to your years riding.
