Sandringham to Bircham Cycling: Off-road Rides

This ride takes you along gently undulating slopes initially under the shade of woodland around Sandringham before emerging into a landscape of open arable fields dotted with shelter belts and small woods and linked by a series of long, hedge lined, unsurfaced tracks. Many of the houses in the small villages and settlements are built with local carrstone, an orange-brown ferruginous sandstone. The pretty villages are linked by long straight roads neatly edged on either side with grass verges. In addition to the well known Sandringham estate and prominent Bircham Windmill, the ride passes the pretty church of St Peter’s in Shernborne, well worth a visit. The ride crosses the Peddars Way a couple of times. This 93 mile National Trail starts at Knettishall Heath in Suffolk and finishes at Holmenext-the-Sea on the Norfolk coast.
