From Aylsham to North Walsham and Bengate to Stalham, most of the Weavers’ Way follows disused railway line, making these sections a great off-road route for cycling or horse riding.
We have suggested two separate cycle rides: Stalham to Bengate and North Walsham to Aylsham. These can be enjoyed in either direction - plus you always see something different heading back the other way.
For a longer ride follow back lanes between Bengate and North Walsham to connect the two routes together.
There are lots of opportunities to extend your cycle ride in this area.
From Aylsham, you can pick up Marriott’s Way (following disused railways to Norwich via Reepham and Lenwade), the Bure Valley Path (which runs beside the 15 inch gauge Bure Valley Railway, heading to Hoveton and Wroxham via Buxton and Coltishall) or SUSTRANS regional route 33, which heads up to Cromer via Blickling and Felbrigg.
The Broads by Bike Route 7 (Stalham, Ingham, Honing, Worstead, Dilham), includes part of the Weavers’ Way and has two loops taking in the picturesque villages in the area totalling about 33 miles. See the Broads by Bike website for information and maps.
