However you enjoy your cycling, Norfolk will have something that suits your taste, whether it’s gentle routes on the coast, countryside or by the Norfolk Broads, or organised sportives.
The Sustrans National Cycle Network, using old railway paths, forest tracks, country parks, bridleways, quiet minor roads and traffic-calmed streets in urban areas, passes through Norfolk and is designed to make cycling fun, safe and simple. The quieter paths, including the Marriott’s Way, are a great place for children and new cyclists to practice their cycling skills and many are just the right length for a day ride or follow the ancient Peddars Way from the heather-carpeted heaths of the Brecks to the wild north Norfolk coast.
If you’re feeling energetic you can try the Norfolk Coastal Cycleway which covers 59 miles from King’s Lynn to Great Yarmouth via Cromer. With much of the route passing through an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty it has dramatic views, beautiful countryside and outstanding wildlife. It follows quiet lanes just inland from the coast and around every corner you will see yet more breath-taking scenery.
Thanks to the gentle gradients of the area the cycleway is perfect for cyclists of all ages and abilities.
If you fancy a shorter route, try the Broads by Bike Trails that take you through picturesque countryside in the Broads National Park or take the Weavers Way from Hoste Barn to NT Blickling Hall and Park.
For Road Cyclists the wonderfully scenic quite lanes dotted with coffee shops is heaven.
