The Dunwich Dynamo

This was the end of the Dunwich Dynamo on the beach some people stripped of and went in for a swim!

The Dunwich Dynamo is an annual semi-organised, through-the-night bicycle ride from London Fields park in Hackney, London, England to Dunwich on the Suffolk coast. The distance is approximately 120 miles (193 kilometres).
The ride (usually abbreviated to “Dun Run” or “DD”) takes place overnight, hence “Dynamo”. It is usually scheduled to take place on the Saturday night closest to the full moon in July, partly for tradition but also because it is easier to ride by moonlight. The date for DD20 was moved to 30 June/1 July 2012 to avoid clashing with the Olympics.
Following the popularity of the Dunwich Dynamo, overnight rides based upon it are being organised in other parts of the country, one of the most popular being the Exmouth Exodus which runs from Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol (until 2013) and later Bath (from 2014) to Exmouth seafront.
