A cycling holiday in beautiful Norfolk or Suffolk could be just the tonic for anyone wanting a relaxing, healthy break away. Cycle tours through Nelson’s county and Constable country, are designed specifically for those that don’t want to have to work too hard. Relatively flat and not too challenging, this area delivers some of the most diverse, interesting and inspiring scenery to be found anywhere in the country.

They are also ideal for those with new or young riders in their group, due to the safe cycling opportunities provided by country lanes, byways and bridleways. These quiet routes give you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the ever-changing scenery and spot rare birds and wildlife along the way.

Take in the beautiful cornfields and the miles of unspoilt coastline. Marvel at the charming seaside towns and stop for fish and chips. See Suffolk Pink or Norfolk Flint as you pedal along at your own pace.

Whichever route you choose, whether it’s peddling through the picturesque old wool town of Lavenham with its unique collection of ancient buildings or passing through Woodbridge on the banks of the river Deben you will be relaxed and refreshed by your surroundings.
