Peddars Way follows a Roman road built along the line of an even older trackway. The name, Peddars Way, is said to be derived from the Latin “pedester”, which means “on foot”.
It can be a challenging off-road ride with some easy sections but others that are bumpy, some that involve moderate climbs and some sections with deep ruts from 4 by 4s! The reward when riding this route is excellent and varied scenery along this 46-mile route that runs from Holme near Hunstanton to the edge of Thetford forest. Most of Peddars Way is off-road and is open to walkers, cyclists and horse-riders. In addition to the main route there are numerous routes leading off the main track providing a huge variety of routes across the Norfolk landscape from the North Norfolk coast through to the sandy heaths of Breckland.
