East Anglia – 2021

East Anglia (in the eastern lobe of England) comprises the counties of Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire. The name originated in the 6th century and derives from the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of the East Angles, a tribe that migrated from Northern Germany.

Much of the East of England has preserved its character, rural landscape, architecture and traditions, and evidence of its importance in history can be seen all around. There are many miles of quiet country lanes to explore, numerous delightful villages to discover and a whole host of castles, stately homes, churches and ancient monuments to visit. The ancient university city of Cambridge, Norwich Cathedral, the beautiful Norfolk coastline and the Royal Estates are amongst the highlights of the itinerary.

People Cycling's Ride Rating

People Cycling has four categories for our rides – Easy, Moderate, Difficult, and Challenging. It should be somewhat obvious what these categories mean, but please become familiar with the elevations and distances that define them:

Easy
Easy rides are under 30mi/48km in average distance and 1600ft/500m in average elevation
Moderate
Moderate rides are over the Easy rating but under 50mi/80km and 2460ft/750m
Difficult
Difficult rides are as over the Moderate rating but under 75mi/120km and 3280/1000m
Challenging
Anything over the Difficult rating

NOTE: This is not a strict guideline. There could be rides that have a day or two where the average elevation or distance exceeds the values given above. These anomalies should be outlined in the ride description. It is recommended that you read it carefully.

About People Cycling

People Cycling is a recently launched cycling club, which you can join for free, and is led by volunteer ride leaders. We will be offering tours in the United States and overseas. Our tours a made up of a small group of participants (typically 20-30 or so) who want to ride 30 to 55 miles a day over a one or two week period in interesting regions of the world.

Our ride leaders are volunteers and do not financially profit on tours they lead. They are also are given broad discretion on how to lead their tours, and we consider them our greatest asset.

People Cycling tours are operated at cost or at lower cost (as negotiated by our ride leaders) than individuals can obtain on commercial tours. Within the cost of a tour, there is a nominal fee to support club operations and provide tools to ride leaders to manage their rides.

A lifetime membership in People Cycling is absolutely FREE, so please join us and become one of us – we the people, cycling together.
