Sustrans National Cycle Route 1
Those looking for a bigger cycling challenge might be interested in taking on Sustrans National Cycle Route 1, part of which passes through areas along the Norfolk Coast, and then inland through the county and beyond into Suffolk.
As an alternative challenge, the Norfolk Coast Cycleway follows Sustrans national route from King’s Lynn to Wighton and then follows quiet lanes and small roads to Great Yarmouth.
