Cycling Down Dementia Norfolk

This event has passed. Congratulations to all the participants. Get race results and photos.

This is a classic Autumn sportive and an opportunity to get some pre-winter miles in as you ride a network of mainly fast, quiet country lanes that criss-cross the beautiful and gently undulating Norfolk countryside. Not forgetting the added grandeur of the Royal Sandringham Estate.

More importantly, this ride supports Cycling Down Dementia; a fundraising event from our 2019 charity ride partner, Alzheimer’s Research UK. Find out how your miles could make a difference below.

Cycling Down Dementia Norfolk routes

Starting in the traditional working market town of Fakenham, we head out from the Racecourse where epic and standard routes will part ways almost immediately. Our standard route heads north-west on this typically flat section of land, towards the pretty villages of North Creake and onwards west to Great Bircham, offering a traditional taste of East Anglia with its millponds and flint cottages.

For those wishing to clock up the mileage, our epic route begins with an additional easterly loop from the racecourse crossing the River Wensum before the rolling country terrain opens up. Pedal through quaint villages including Fulmodeston, Hindringham and Binham, briefly skirting into the gorgeous Norfolk Coast AONB.

Shortly after Little Walsingham, you’ll re-join our standard route, passing Stanhoe and Great Bircham. We’ll pedal westward as far as the village of Snettisham, just 5 miles from the coast and within a stone’s throw of the Snettisham RSPB Nature Reserve.

Remaining inland, save enough in the tank to turn south and enter the tree-lined grounds of the Royal Sandringham Estate, which always looks grand in Autumn colours. Only a short ride then separates you from the royal grounds and a finisher’s medal back in Fakenham, passing the Royal Stud and continuing through Anmer, Great Massingham and Litcham.
