The Edge is an exciting cycling challenge event in aid of the Hospice, taking place on 12 July.

The event features four routes offering beautiful views of the West Suffolk countryside, starting and finishing at Maglia Rosso Cycling Centre, in Hawstead.

The routes are achievable for all cyclists, but a little bit of training beforehand is advised. Riders can choose to take on either 15 miles (our new family-friendly route), 30 miles, 60 miles or 100 miles. The routes will be chip-timed for those who fancy adding a competitive edge to their ride.
