Cycle Steps
The Burwell 4 is made up between Burwell, Reach, Newmarket and Exening. This is a moderate to hard route. It a has miles and miles of off- road tracks and trails as well as country roads and B roads. There are some amazingly steep drops along Devils Dyke, but if you'r not into that, there are side ways to avoid these. There are three sections that require you to climb approx 20 steps up/down. Some parts are very technical but nothing to demanding. If your a keen Mountain biker or cross country rider this is a must.
Landmarks/Pubs for lunch/Sites to see?
Devils Dyke (Reach to Newmarket section), Rowley Mile race course, National horse racing museum, National Stud, July race course, Cycle shop in Newmarket, more than 2 Pubs on route, Panoramic veiws of country side beauty, many conveinence stores for refreshments etc, and lots more.

Nice route. I have done the route as is and also adjusted it slightly. When going through Exning to Newmarket, instead of cycling along the Exning road I have cut out the back Exning, head straight down chapel road to Frogmore - passed the allotments and under the A14. follow this and you you come out at the back of the racecourse. Best to do in the afternoon/Evening to avoid the horses.
