Ex­plor­ing Nor­folk

One of the best ways to see the county is on two wheels

EDP Norfolk - - On Two Wheels -

NOR­FOLK is a county renowned for its beau­ti­ful scenery, vast land­scapes and char­ac­ter­is­tic coun­try towns and vil­lages. As the days grow longer and spring en­ters full swing, what bet­ter way to ex­pe­ri­ence the coun­try­side and coast­lines of Nor­folk than by bi­cy­cle?

The Cy­clelife depart­ment at Bak­ers and Larn­ers of Holt pro­vides a year-long cy­cle hire ser­vice for hol­i­day mak­ers and lo­cal cus­tomers alike. Whether your in­ten­tion is a leisurely ride or an all-ter­rain ex­cur­sion, the store pro­vides a num­ber of routes from the cen­tre of Holt that take in the scenery, and the his­tory and her­itage of North Nor­folk — per­fect for a fam­ily group or for the in­di­vid­ual.

Even if you aren’t able to make it to the store to col­lect your bi­cy­cle, Bak­ers and Larn­ers of­fers a handy de­liv­ery ser­vice for all cus­tomers within a 10 mile ra­dius.

“Many peo­ple tend to think of Nor­folk as a flat land­scape, but it re­ally isn’t as flat as you would think! There’s great va­ri­ety in the ter­rain in and around Holt,” said Cy­clelife as­sis­tant, Peter Mar­shall.

As well as its hire ser­vice, the depart­ment stocks a wide range of bi­cy­cles for all ages and re­quire­ments and is also home to a cy­cle main­te­nance and re­pair fa­cil­ity where Peter is only too happy to oblige with a va­ri­ety of cy­cle ad­just­ments and ren­o­va­tions.

“We ser­vice any brand from modern to vin­tage. No mat­ter how weird or won­der­ful the con­trap­tion, our ties with spe­cial­ist sup­pli­ers means we can get the job done.”

Peter Mar­shall, Cy­clelife as­sis­tant
