Thank you for all the enquiries but its been decided that the NNUH Sportive event won't take place in 2019. Thank you to everyone for all the support in raising so much for such a worthy cause over the years. We will keep in contact with the hospital to see if there are other ways that we can fundraise in the future.
We love to run the NNUH 100 Sportive and its always a great day, but the real reason is to raise vital funds for the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. We are pleased to announce that this years total is £3000, this doesn't include any additional sponsorship that you may have raised so please let us know. The actual figure came just under so we rounded it up to make things neat and tidy. So that makes a total of £12350 donated from the event since we started. Our thanks to all the riders that came as all this is raised from simply you entering the event. ... See MoreSee Less
All our riders will be in safe hands again this year with mechanical support from Evans Cycles. There will be assistance at HQ for any last minute issues and tweaks as well as mobile support. So hopefully you won't need them but its reassuring to know they are there on hand. ... See MoreSee Less
We are lucky to have the Risi Bici Cafe Deli pop up cafe with us at HQ for the day to keep us all fed and refreshed. Simon has recently been selected as the The Tour Of Britain and The Women's Tour official coffee supplier 2018 so if there is something he knows about its cycling and coffee!
On the menu will be Neapolitan style 12" pizzas, Portuguese pastries, cold San Pellegrino and Sicilian coffee which all sounds fantastic.
Our longest route, 100 miles, is possibly our favourite. The route shares the same route as the 60 mile route but carries on near Harleston heading on to our feed station at Fressingfield. Going on from there is passes by the stunning estate at Heveningham before meandering through the beautiful Suffolk country roads before rejoining the 60 route just before the feed station at St Margaret's. ...

Our 60 mile course follows the 30 mile route out to Old Buckenham before heading through the idilic villages of the Pulhams before heading to Harleston and into Suffolk to our Feed Station at St Margaret's. The route back is on lovely quiet roads heading back via Hempnal and Flordon before arriving back to the HQ at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital. ... See MoreSee Less
30 mile riders! Our 30 mile route heads out on quiet roads that have been previously used by the Tour of Britain. Our half way stop is at the fantastic Cafe Cadence in Old Buckenham. The Cafe is just a short distance from the route but all will be sign posted and its worth the stop. Once you're refreshed, head back on course for the return section to Norwich. We try and avoid all major road for this to bring you safely back to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital to finish. ... See MoreSee Less
