Route signs on the Peddars Way, on a very little-used lane out of Castle Acre

The Peddars Way leaving Castle Acre on a narrow lane

Link from Castle Acre Priory to the Peddars Way

The Peddars Way leaves Castle Acre through the Bailey Gate

The actual market place in Burnham Market now has spacious service roads on either side of the main road for two-way cycling.

Sensible scheme to slow cars at the junction - but why not put in some cycle parking for the Burnham Market Stores across the road?

Rouse's Lane passes through an industrial estate, with the end unit displaying a very questionable "no walking" sign to the bridleway.

Rouse's Lane connects the Howdale with Stonecross Road. The tarmac road from the cemetery joins Rouse's Lane at this point - the dead get smoother roads than the living!

The first part of Stonecross Road east of the A10 is tarmac and used to access the garden centre on the right

Stonecross Road between Downham Market and Bexwell diverts through the car park of these industrial units to cross the A10.

Royal injury collision

Roads in Burnham Market are all effectively reduced to alternate one-way use by parked cars.

Even in April Burnham Market is dominated by cars.

NCN route 1 avoiding the centre of Burnham Market

More confident riders might just make a conventional right turn on the road here.

NCN route 1 crossing a fairly minor road.

GIVE WAY Cycle lanes sign where Route 1 crosses a car park road, possibly 1990s vintage - the lower plate would be phrased "Cycle track" under current regulations.

Cycle track bypass of mini-roundabout. Very rough and rarely swept, compared with the smooth carriageway which is unsurprisingly preferred by most cyclists.

A gate narrower than the road, enabling cycles to enter/exit the Walks from the south easily. Very simple yet underrated infrastructure.

Cycling zebra crossing at the southern entrance to King's Lynn Transport Interchange. One third of the cycle park visible to the left of the riders.

Emerging from Waterloo Street which is one way except cycles. People cycling can either ride straight across as a give-way or use the Toucan crossing on the left as shown. The shared-use path ahead is barely wide enough for peak times … [more]

New layout of Waterloo Street allowing two-way cycling. It says Shared Space but it's not quite as we know it. The no-entry signs at the far end have "Except Cycles" below.

Cycleway avoiding A10/A47/A149 junction on the left, at a level slightly below the footpath (centre) but that doesn't matter: most walkers use the cycleway around this junction because it's further away from the road. Cycle traffic has to … [more]

Heading down the Avenue towards Dersingham. Much easier than the climb back up. Although this is a B-road, it is usually pretty quiet: quieter than the minor road leading to Sandringham car parks from the A149.

Quiet grass-centred road around the back of houses avoiding staggered crossroads.

A10 cycleway stops with this uncontrolled merge onto the rough-surfaced Watlington Road just where traffic is accelerating away from the Oakwood Corner roundabout towards the quarry. It could be a useful link to RR30 to Watlington rail … [more]

The better bit of the A10 cycleway just stops at this roundabout with a right-angle turn into a set of unmarked crossings of busy roads and an incorrect sign that says "Watlington ¼m" - maybe to the parish boundary, but not to the village … [more]

Hardwick Road / Campbells Meadow crossing island. Wide toucan crossings with large dipped areas and flat kerbs. It's much better than most, but has a few mistakes: the push buttons should be further from the road edge, the turn onto the … [more]

Boal Quay / Hardings Way collapsing bollards. Picture taken with handlebar camera. Bizarrely, NCN Route 1 still hasn't been diverted onto this flat, quiet bus-and-bikes-only road built as part of the mostly-harmful-to-cycling CIF2 project - … [more]

Quiet riverside link from NCN routes 11 and 30 to Littleport station - one of the few times the road climbs up beside the Great Ouse.

Quiet riverside link from NCN routes 11 and 30 to Littleport station.

Quiet riverside link from NCN routes 11 and 30 to Littleport station

NCN route 30 crosses the A10 here to join NCN route 11 across the fens.

A wet Sunday morning - perhaps the best time to cycle on the A10... At least there are cycleable shoulders here, but they don't last long.

The A10 - narrow and busy with impatient drivers (as a rule) - not cycle-friendly.

Turning into the new Kings Lynn bus & bike road.

Road closure with no provision for cyclists - not even dropped kerbs

Downham Market is a pleasant market town, that has been marred like many others by a needless one way system. Here, people on NCN11 have to take a tour of the town via that same one way system. Why ? It allows the streets to be used as a … [more]

This is where NCN11 should go, straight up the High Street, but it is one way. So you have to cycle all the way around the one way system. Is it really so important that the van has a place to park ? Why isn't there two way cycling ? Have … [more]
