Q. Can you cycle The Peddars Way

Dean Parrott, Kings Lynn


A. The Peddars Way and Norfolk Coast Path is a 151km (94 miles) linear footpath connecting Knettishall Heath in Suffolk, England with Cromer in Norfolk, England. It is waymarked by a National Trail Acorn.

Most of the Peddars Way is a bridleway and open to cyclists. There are however a number of short sections which are designated as a footpath and you are not permitted to ride a bicycle along them.

There are alternatives to these sections:

North of Knettishall Heath Country Park: Alternative road route via bridleway through Riddlesworth Hall School, West Harling Heath, Bridgeham to join the Peddars Way just south of the A11.

Little Cressingham: The footpath runs alongside the road on the field edge. Cyclists must use the road.

South Pickenham: Where the footpath leaves the road cyclists must keep to the tarmac surface and take the next left into North Pickenham village to rejoin the Peddars Way.

Castle Acre: Just north of Castle Acre the route runs alongside the road on a field edge path. Cyclists must keep to the tarmac road.

Fring: At Fring Cross (ford) the Pedders Way becomes a public footpath, cyclists must turn left and follow tarmac roads into Sedgeford left then right towards Ringstead. It is possible to turn right just past the old railway line and follow roads past Neat's Ling to rejoin the Peddars Way just south of Ringstead.

Ringstead: North of Ringstead the path turns left along a field edge. Cyclists must keep to the tarmac road, ride down the hill into Holme next the Sea.

The Norfolk Coast Path is a footpath and cycling is not permitted.

Hope this helps . . .
