Ride Description

East Anglia – England’s Hidden Cycling Paradise


With flat to very gently undulating terrain throughout the region, East Anglia is a cycling paradise – particularly for those who look on hills and mountains as more of a chore than a pleasure! However, there are plenty of extension options for those who want to tackle more than the core routes – including an optional 100-mile loop ride! There are many hundreds of miles of virtually traffic-free country lanes to explore, numerous delightful villages to discover and a whole host of castles, stately homes, churches and ancient monuments to visit. The ancient university city of Cambridge, Norwich Cathedral, the beautiful Norfolk coastline, the Norfolk Broads and the Royal Estates are amongst the highlights of the itinerary.

The name East Anglia derives from the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of the East Angles, a tribe that migrated to the region in the east of England from Northern Germany. Much of the East of England has preserved its character, rural landscape, architecture and traditions, and evidence of its importance in history can be seen all around. This is leisure bicycle touring at its very best!

People Cycling's Ride Rating

People Cycling has four categories for our rides – Easy, Moderate, Difficult, and Challenging. It should be somewhat obvious what these categories mean, but please become familiar with the elevations and distances that define them:

Easy rides are under 30mi/48km in average distance and 1600ft/500m in average elevation
Moderate rides are over the Easy rating but under 50mi/80km and 2460ft/750m
Difficult rides are as over the Moderate rating but under 75mi/120km and 3280/1000m
Anything over the Difficult rating

NOTE: This is not a strict guideline. There could be rides that have a day or two where the average elevation or distance exceeds the values given above. These anomalies should be outlined in the ride description. It is recommended that you read it carefully.

About People Cycling

People Cycling is a bicycle touring club, which you can join for free. We offer Domestic and International Cycling Tours which are led by volunteer Ride Leaders. Our tours are made up of a small group of participants (typically 15-20 or so) who want to ride an average of 30 to 55 miles a day over a one or two week period in interesting regions of the world. Our tours range in price from frugal getaways to luxurious adventures. We travel road, gravel, or mountain bike styles, and all bicycle types – including e-bikes, recumbents, and tandems are typically allowed.

Our ride leaders are volunteers and do not financially profit on tours they lead. They are also given broad discretion on how to lead their tours, and we consider them our greatest asset.

People Cycling tours are operated at cost or at lower cost (as negotiated by our ride leaders) than individuals can obtain on commercial tours. Within the cost of a tour, there is a nominal fee to support club operations and provide tools to ride leaders to manage their rides.
