The Broadsman

Description

100km cycling event starting from Lound village hall, nr Lowestoft, Suffolk. Controls at Sea Palling, Reedham Ferry and Lound., plus 1 information control.



The route takes you through much of The Broads National Park, including Hickling, Hoveton, Wroxham, Salhouse and Ranworth. It includes a number of quiet lanes and picturesque villages, particularly Woodbastwick (look out for the Wherry real ales brewery) and a ferry ride at Reedham. There is a nice and interesting stretch along the Norfolk coast from just north of Gt Yarmouth to Sea Palling (passes Horsey windmill National Trust property). At one of the control options in Sea Palling you might be interested to look at the photo's of the 1953 floods. Also plenty of ice cream opportunities!
