Following its enormous success last year, a four ferries bike ride is being arranged for Saturday 22nd September 2018 as part of the Trust’s work in raising funds for the river defences. The ride of some 42 miles will cross all of the four Foot Ferries of Suffolk, including the Association's Butley Ferry.
The Four Ferries Bike Ride is a charity ride with a difference, taking you along small roads and tracks and potentially using four ferries. Harwich Ferry (you can get there by train) runs across busy shipping lanes with a great view of the port. Next Bawdsey at the mouth of the river Deben, a fast flowing, ever changing river mouth. Then ride on to the peaceful, beautiful Butley Ferry where one is likely to see avocets, marsh harriers and seals and where cyclists are rowed across by volunteers. Last but not in anyway least, Walberswick Ferry crosses the River Blythe, again very tidal and narrow and a real fun experience within easy reach of ice creams and pubs in Southwold. The route can be ridden in either direction.
Please come and enjoy this ride through the Suffolk countryside and help the Trust's work in raising funds for river defences on the Alde and Ore Estuary. Please book early to avoid disappointment as a maximum of 100 cyclists can take part.
