The Original Century ride returns for it's 26th year! Norfolk is a fantastic place to cycle, varied countryside, quiet roads and not as flat as you think. Starting from City Hall the ride takes in the edge of the Broads, Horsey Mill, the coast and hills on the way to Cley, then back past Blickling Hall before a triumphant return with the backdrop of the Cathedral.

Music, beer tent and food at the Finish, and signed routes, GPX mapping, cycle mechanics, pick-up vehicles, medics and refreshment stops around the beautiful Norfolk countryside.

Norwich is a wonderful fusion of the modern and historic - easy to walk around and with a flourishing arts, music and cultural scene, why not make a weekend of it?
