Back for it’s sixth year, our award winning cycling event returns to the Norfolk roads.

New for 2018, an epic 150 mile Round Norfolk route in 12 hours to challenge the toughest of riders.
The routes
10 mile route
25 mile route
50 mile route
75 mile route
150 mile route

The 10 and 25 mile routes are family-friendly, with half way refreshment stops at Shernborne and Great Bircham, respectively.
The 50 and 75 mile routes are more challenging, heading out to the beautiful and relatively hilly North Norfolk Coast. These routes pass through the magnificent grounds of Holkham Hall, where our well-stocked feed station welcomes riders at 25 and 50 mile intervals.

The 150 mile route will start and finish at Park House, and will take you along the North Norfolk coast and back via The Broads with designated food and drink stops at Salthouse, Horsey, Reepham and Walsingham. This ride is for experienced cyclists and is only for over 18’s.

All routes are downloadable (you might want a portable charger for your device if taking part in the 150 mile route) and signposted. We will also supply pocket route details at registration.

Timings
All routes start and finish in the grounds of Park House, where there is ample free parking. Please allow 30 minutes for registering and signing in.
150 mile — 7.00 start. There will be no on the day registrations allowed for this route so ensure you pre-register. All riders must be back by 19.00.

10 and 25 miles — 9.00 to 10.00 start

The signage crews may need to make minor amendments on the day to take account of local circumstances. In that event, the arrow signs take precedence over the Garmin routes.

Why Cycle Together?

While the whole of your entry fee goes to support Park House, we also ask you to try and raise at least £50 in sponsorship. This will go towards improving the amenities and facilities for our disabled guests.
Last year’s money is being used to lay the foundations for a fully accessible outdoor games area, and this year’s will enable us to add games and specialist equipment, including sitting areas and wheelchair swings.
Over the past five years, fundraising has provided a new minibus, wheelchair accessible paths around the grounds and has started the new project of a fully accessible activities area so guests can enjoy their holidays to the maximum.
