A medium length ride along quiet country lanes and ideal for a family picnic.
The route crosses the river Thurne at Potter Heigham, a traditional and busy broads boating centre, but then takes you into the peaceful countryside around How Hill nature reserve, managed by the Broads Authority. An ideal picnic site, there are also walking trails and boat trips (Apr. to Oct.), and a museum in Toad Hole Cottage.
An optional spur leads to the historic ruins of St. Benet’s Abbey on the River Bure. Car parking is available with permission at Clippesby Hall cycle centre and coffee shop.
