Join us on a wonderful 64 mile route from Norwich to the idyllic coastal village of Happisburgh and Waxham (lunch stop) starting from and returning to Norwich, and taking in the Broadland district via Acle and Reedham which is on the mainline railway service from London, Ipswich and Colchester, as well as the regional routes from Liverpool, Nottingham and Cambridge.

The route itself takes in a lot of quiet lanes with a tea / lunch stop in Horsey (a national trust site with a wonderful windmill), with a total distance of 64 miles.

The ride will be at the pace of the slowest rider, with a benchmark expectation of an average speed of 14mph for the circuit, so manageable by most road cyclists who have done 50 miles in one tour before. Ride time expectations should be 6-7 hours taking in the rest and lunch stops and a leisurely ride pace.
