Cycling tour in Norfolk countryside this Saturday (2 July)

A small group of Ukrainian students is going to cycle around historical places in Norfolk. The route is currently under consideration. We will either take a train to King’s Lynn and cycle from there to Holkham – to visit beautiful estates and a national nature reserve (http://www.holkham.co.uk/html/holkhamestate.html) or will take a train to Norwich and cycle from there to the east coast, visiting old East-Anglian villages and churches, the ruins of Caster castle and the remains of Burgh Castle Roman Fort on the way. Depending on the weather, we may stay overnight at the seaside and continue our trip next day.

Last year’s cycling tour in North Norfolk was a great success and we hope to repeat that success this year. A return ticket to Norwich or King’s Lynn with your railway card is about £10. You will need a bicycle in working order, food and drink for one-two days (there will be no big supermarkets on the way), a sleeping bag and/or tent will be an asset (but we have one or two spare). If you are interested, please let Lyuda (lb360) know before Thursday evening. The number of places is limited. Ideally, the group should not exceed 6-7 persons in order to avoid difficulties in transporting bicycles on a train.
