Wickham Market, Dallinghoo, Hasketon and Bealings

OS Explorer map 212, coordinates 30 56 for Wickham Market.

This turned into a 24 mile lap that I did twice (different days). First time I think I was heading for Framlingham and took a bit of a diversion because Dallinghoo sounded like fun.

The route from Kesgrave is to the centre of Woodbridge then Melton then straight on through  Ufford to Wickham Market. All on decent roads and well signposted. There are a few bits of cycle path alongside the roads but not all the way so its best done early in the morning, like a lot of cycling, in order to avoid the traffic.

Part of the route involves a much  busier than I like bit of the B1438 where traffic comes off the A12 on a bend and passes too fast and too close for comfort. That’s really why I worked out the quieter lane route back which goes Dallinghoo, Bredfield, Hasketon, Bealings or Woodbridge, then home.

Wickham Market has a central square with a sheltered bus stop which makes a good pit stop for a snack and a map review. To get this far is about 9 miles from Kesgrave and 45 minutes cycling.

Try to avoid coming out onto the A12 at Bredfield. If you do there is a cycle track alongside for a while but it eventually runs out. Better to find your way back to Hasketon then Grundisburgh and Bealings.

I might have made this sound more difficult that it is but its fun enough to have done twice especially the long mazy return around the villages lanes.
