Forming part of the Peddars Way and Norfolk Coast Path National Trail, the Peddars Way follows the route of a Roman road, cutting through diverse landscapes from Knettishall Heath in Suffolk through to the north Norfolk coast at Holme-next-the-Sea.
The Peddars Way Cycle Route will be signed from Thetford Railway Station to Bridgham Heath and then north all the way through to Holme-next-the-Sea.
Much of the Peddars Way is suitable for cycling with some of it being on quiet lanes and country roads and other sections being on unsurfaced country roads or bridleways.
