Marriott’s Way Cycle Route Overall Rating: ⭐⭐⭐
Marriott’s Way is a shared path of 26 miles, linking Norwich with Aylsham via a circuitous route. As you’d expect from a trail on a disused railway, it’s very flat. There are sculptures or benches at every mile marker, and a bike shop inside the old signal box at the Whitwell and Reepham Station.
Surface on Marriott’s Way
The surface is unsealed along almost all of the trail, and can get quite muddy. In places it is almost more of a footpath than a proper cycle trail, but cycling is explicitly permitted along the entire length.
You will want a bike with chunkier tyres and mudguards. Trikes and most cargo bikes may struggle with some parts, due to the surface.
These are available at the start, at Whitwell & Reepham Station and at Aylsham.
