Suffolk's Virtual Cycling Mission

Suffolk County Council’s Chairman, Graham Newman, is inviting you to join him on a virtual cycling mission to raise much-needed funds for St Elizabeth Hospice.

Moving Suffolk

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to cycle 272km (169 miles), between the 1st February and 31st March.

Why 272km?

This distance is equivalent to riding from Ipswich to Felixstowe and to all St Elizabeth Hospice premises and shops across Suffolk!

St Elizabeth Hospice relies on community fundraising to keep it caring for patients.

And there are even prizes up for grabs! trophy 

Will you join Graham Newman in this challenge?
