We are delighted to welcome Bure Valley Cycle Hire as a prime Love the Broads business partner.

Based in the picturesque Broads village of Coltishall and right next door to the famous Bure Valley narrow gauge steam railway, cyclists can explore the 9 mile stretch of the recently resurfaced railway path without having to cycle on any roads. Remember a bygone era with steam trains passing right beside you.  You can even arrive in Coltishall by boat or train!  There is a range of Specialized Hard Rock mountain bikes, with front suspension with tyres filled with “Goop”, which instantly repairs should a puncture occur.

A great time was had by all at the latest Love the Broads Member event held at Ranworth on Saturday 18th June.  Members were taken by boat from Ranworth Staithe to the Norfolk Wildlife Trust Visitor Centre where Lee and the team of volunteers welcomed our group and gave a really interesting overview of the thatched building with an opportunity to view the stunning wildlife on the Broad.  A gentle walk to St Helen’s tea room followed with delicious tea and cake and a fabulous guided tour of Ranworth Church.   We are so grateful for the support of so many to make this an event to remember.
