If the description seems a little hazy that’s because the ride is technically unorganised. There is no registration, no timer and no number to pin on to your cycle jersAnyone can do the Dunwich Dynamo. Whether you’ve only ever ridden 15 miles before but someone lends you a posh racer so you decide to give it a shot. Whether you’re part of a lycra-clad cycle crew who’ve been in training for the past six months, or you cycle so slowly that you only arrive at at the beach after everyone else has left (our friend Toby in 2013).
I’ve been doing the ride (not race) for five years with, as one friend succinctly put it a “ragtag medley of street cleaners, Greco-Roman wrestlers, lost people and one professional Italian”. This is supposed to be the ethos but as the dynamo grows in notoriety is it able to maintain this spirit?
