Suffolk

Two Ipswich's - 10,000 miles apart

The county town of Suffolk is, of course, Ipswich, which has a proud history of manufacturing, beautiful parks, a thriving riverside and a popular transport museum. In Australia there is another Ipswich, 26 miles from Brisbane, which also has a proud history of manufacturing, beautiful parks, a popular transport museum, etc. This much I learnt from a guidebook, but I assumed that the similarities probably ended there as Ipswich, Queensland, is much bigger than Ipswich, Suffolk, with a population of around 200,000.

Saddle Up for Summer.

 
As small sun-shaped symbols hopefully appear on the weather forecasters maps, many people will remember the sporting summer of 2012 and decide they really should head outdoors and take up a sport. Perhaps cycling?  Riding a bike could help you to get fit, save you money and enable you to enjoy the towns and countryside of Suffolk and Norfolk from a new perspective.
