We recently hired bikes when we visited Thetford Forest and really enjoyed cycling round with our Mini Mumblers. It made me think about other places where you can hire bikes and where is good to go with them, so I thought I’d do a bit of Mumbler research:
Bike Art Thetford
High Lodge Forest Centre, IP27 0AF
“Breathe in the natural beauty of the unique Brecks landscape in Thetford Forest. Explore by bike on 40 miles of traffic free marked trails, providing safe cycling for families and access to more challenging terrain for experts.”
The Norfolk Broads Cycling Centre at BeWILDerwood
Horning Road, Hoveton NR12 8JW
07887 480 331
“Broadland Cycle Hire has been providing cycle hire services around the Broads for over 20 years and we have extensive experience to help you enjoy the wonderful scenery of the Broads National Park – Britain’s Magical Waterland – on two wheels.”
Choose to hire from the centre at BeWILDerwood, or Self Service hire stations in Hoveton at the Broads Authorities Visitor Centre on Station Road, in Horning next to the car park by the Swan inn and at Ludham Bridge.
They’ve listed some Norfolk Broads Cycling Routes on their website too.
Sea Palling Cycle Hire
Sea Palling NR12 0EE
“Bicycle hire and delivery company. We are situated on Regional Cycle Route 30 and serve the picturesque Norfolk villages of Horsey, Hickling, Martham, Potter Heigham, and of course Sea Palling.”
They also have some maps of cycling routes in Norfolk.
Huff and Puff Cycles at Kelling Heath
Kelling Heath Holiday Park, Holt NR25 7HW
“As a family business, Huff and Puff Cycles are proud to offer a friendly and efficient cycle hire service for individuals, couples and families. We can easily cater for larger group bookings with our fleet of over 150 quality cycles. We also have tag-a-long cycles, child seats and buggies. For twice the fun, why not try a tandem?”
They also do the Huff and Puff Trail – “A full day out. A circular trip combining a largely traffic-free ride of 6.5 miles with a journey on the North Norfolk Railway from Sheringham to Holt. Exclusive to cycle hirers only.”
Holkham Cycle Hire
Holkham Estate, Wells-next-the-Sea NR23 1AB
“The scenic routes through Holkham park are perfect for cycling and an opportunity for visitors to explore more of the estate…We have bicycles for the whole family, with full-sized adult bikes, various child-sized bikes, balance bikes and tag cycles plus trailers and child seats for our youngest visitors.”
Waveney River Centre

“The Broads and surrounding countryside are the ideal place for cycling. Quiet roads, gentle slopes, beautiful countryside and fresh air, all combine to make cycling a real pleasure.”
