After riding the Cantii Way last year, we decided to try another of Cycling UK’s routes and tackle the Rebellion Way, a 232-mile route around Norfolk. We took the shorter route option, cutting directly across from Norwich to Kings Lynn, making our route just shy of 200 miles.

The tour took us along a mix of quiet, mostly flat back roads, byways, cycle paths and bridleways under huge panoramic skies. We passed through some amazing country estates, such as Sandringham and Holkham, lovely villages and seaside hotspots.

For me the highlight was finishing in the Norfolk Broads, the home of my favourite childhood books, Coot Club & Big Six by Arthur Ransome. Camping by the Salhouse Broad that evening, I was able to enjoy a beautiful sunset swim.

Details of the official route, the guidebook etc. can be found on Cycling UK’s Rebellion Way website, but the following is our version of the route (including our minor detours and the shortcut from Norwich to Kings Lynn) and details of campsites and cafe stops.
