The Dunwich Dynamo
The Dunwich Dynamo is an annual semi-organised, through-the-night bicycle ride from London Fields park in Hackney, London, England to Dunwich on the Suffolk coast. The distance is approximately 112 miles (180 km).
It is free to enter and quite popular. The last time I participated there were over 1000 riders.
People gather at London fields and then set off when they are ready. Some people are treating it like a race and trying to get the distance done in the fastest time. Most are just going at their own pace.
It’s a great ride. Lights and lanterns lined the roads at certain points. There was an early morning rest stop in a village hall somewhere in Suffolk.
It was just the right distance, not to hilly, quiet roads and a nice gradual change of scenery from the city to the countryside.
Full English in the morning at the tea shop on the beach.
A swim if you are brave.
