FROM THE EAST Sunny Hunny sur­prise

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Riding -

W hile the fi­nal 40 miles of this route along the A47 from King’s Lynn to the show­ground are a bit of a slog, the pre­ced­ing 90 more than make up for the Fens’ flat­ness! The coastal road from Great Yar­mouth to Cromer and then on to­wards Hun­stan­ton is sim­ply won­der­ful and full of hid­den sur­prises and pretty vil­lages. It can get a bit heavy with tourist traf­fic, and over­tak­ing is tricky due to its nar­row­ness, but if you get a good run you will love ev­ery­thing East Anglia has to of­fer – es­pe­cially the seafood!

Take a pic­ture at: Stop at Cromer for a pic­ture on the har­bour be­fore sam­pling one of the fa­mous Cromer crabs or strolling along the Vic­to­rian pier.

Stop for a cuppa at: Hun­stan­ton is a bik­ing hotspot and the fish and chips are ex­cel­lent. There is loads of bike park­ing and there are plenty of chip­pies to choose from.

Watch out for: Be very care­ful with over­takes. The roads are nar­row, the tourists un­aware and car­a­vans of­ten take up much of the tar­mac.
