Scroll this

The Norfolk Forest to Sea (F2C) trail is a 137-mile mixed-surface bikepacking or cycle touring route from Thetford to Great Yarmouth, connecting existing trails such as disused raillways and public bridleways with quiet lanes. It links Breckland, the North Norfolk Coast and the Broads with the east coast. A comprehensive, detailed touring guide is available for download below.

Now I’ve moved from Norfolk to the Isle of Lewis, I’m no longer in a position to update the guide and I’m offering it free to email subscribers. Thank you to all who supported the routes. I hope you continue to enjoy them and that we’ll see you soon for an outdoor adventure at Tom an Fhuadain (watch this space).
