The Edge 2019 is an exciting cycling challenge event which covers a 30, 60 or 100-mile route across West Suffolk.

Last year, riders taking part in The Edge raised more than £4,000 for St Nicholas Hospice Care.

There is a choice of three distances, 30, 60 or 100 mile – all starting and finishing from Maglia Rosso in Hawstead.

Registration starts from £25 and is open to anyone over the age of 14. All riders will receive a free snood with their registration and medal at the finish.
