Details

This cycle ride starts form the charming market town of Swaffham, haunt of the wealthy in Georgian times. From here the route heads west along quiet country lanes into The Brecks or Breckland, a unique landscape of heath, pine forests and large open fields. It is pitted with settlements such as Cockley Cley and Beachamwell, which date back to the earliest times. Along this route you can climb up a wind turbine tower for magnificent views, explore a 'quintessential moated manor house' and go back in time to a reconstructed Iron Age Village.
