Diss Cyclathon, the popular cycling event and family fun day for cyclists young and old, has been confirmed to take place again on June 23.

The event that this year saw more than 1,000 people take to the country lanes around Diss and enjoy the cycling-related entertainment in the town’s park beside Diss Mere was recently named ‘Best Cycling Event’ at Cycling UK’s volunteer awards.

The highlight of the 2019 event will again be the challenging Nine Town Sportive, a 25, 50 or 100 mile route around Norfolk and Suffolk market towns, but riders will also have the opportunity to take part in family rides, of five, 10 or 15 miles.

The event will this year coincide with what promises to be a week-long cycling celebration with the HSBC UK National Road Championships taking place in Norfolk on June 27, including a city to coast 100-mile closed road cycling race.

* Diss Cyclathon Nine Town Sportive places are limited to 1,000. You can book a place now at dissclyclathon.org.uk
