On the very edge of the Broads National Park and only a short ride from the coast, cycling from Norwich is a perfect way to explore this unique, low-lying landscape. A historic city with plenty of intriguing architecture, pedalling your way through to its exceptional, rural neighbouring countryside is very pleasurable. 

The River Yare meanders around the south of the city and heads out east, providing an excellent central artery for cycle routes from Norwich and back. The Broads is a sprawling national park and rides will take you past myriad rivers, quaint traditional villages and gentle, rolling countryside without so much as a hill in sight. 

The Broads and the coast offer serenity, charm and joyful bike rides but the landscape on Norwich’s other three sides has plenty to offer the curious cyclist. Encircled by pastoral scenes, quiet lanes and a vast expanse of flat-ish land, explore until your legs can’t carry on.
