Challenge yourself to Wimpole's cycle trail 

Wimpole is set in the quiet Cambridgeshire countryside and is surrounded by rolling fields, small picturesque villages and farmland. This trail will take you through the parkland and woodland that may have a natural look, but has been just as carefully designed as the house at its heart.

Cycling at Hatfield Forest in the summer 

Fancy exploring the open plains and forest rides at Hatfield Forest by bike? We recommend you visit in the summer months when the ground conditions are drier, to help us care for the forest. You'll need an all terrain bike as there are no trails to follow and the surface can be uneven in places.

" I find nothing unwinds me after a hard day at work quite like hopping on my bike and giving the legs a good stretch, especially in the beautiful North Norfolk countryside. "
