I live in Lynn and this route is one of the roads to ride on a sunny Sunday ... Or you can make your way to Roxham on the Broads and stop down by the water ... Watch the boats and get something to eat ... Then make you way back to Lynn using the coast road ... Another good ride ...

King's Lynn to North Elmham is one of my favourite rides in the county, Some good sweeping bends with a friendly camber and some wide secdtions with fast riding, mixed with a few tight corners just to keep you on your toes! Carry on past N Elmham and head for Weston Longville to the Pasrson Woodeford pub fpr great food. Enjoy......

The B1145 is a nice route to take you from one side of Norfolk to the other without seeing much traffic and zero congestion. Start in Mundesley and follow B1145 to North Walsham. This is a wide country lane type road with lots of bends.At traffic lights at N Walsham turn right twds Cromer (A149) and then take the 3rd left (Greens Road) twds Felmingham. At T Jct turn right back onto B1145 and continue to T Jct with A140 at Aylsham. This part more open with views across bends but some speed limits in villages. At A140 turn left and continue to roundabout. Go straight on, back onto B1145 twds Reepham and Cawston. Some nice open stretches here but also some hidden bends in trees and dips. At X-rds in Reepham turn right twds Bawdeswell. (Public toilet in market Place just to left at this x-rds.)At T Jct with A1067 in Bawdeswell turn right and then 2nd left back onto B1145. This is where the fun starts! From here route is fairly open all the way to Gayton 5 miles from Kings Lynn. Villages all have speed limits and Police do pay attention now and again. Also main hazard is locals pulling out of side roads, some on bends but usually signed, anticipating the fastest moving vehicle being the local milk float. At numerous X-rds carry straight on but some are some slightly staggered.After the A1065 the road really opens out for the last few miles to Gayton but beware junctions on/ just around bends for the first bit. At Gayton its a fairly straight run into Kings Lynn mostly in a 50 MPH limit.A fairly long route with the best bit being from Bawdeswell to Gayton.
