The organisation said the area near Sheringham featured coastal paths and "inspiring" cycle routes.

These routes included a ride to Weybourne beach, Sheringham Park, Holt and Baconsthorpe Castle, as well as a trip taking Wiveton, Cley and Glandford.

Kelling Heath Holiday Park also received a mention, with Cycling UK saying its hire bikes from on-site provider Huff and Puff provided a great way for people to explore the trail on either traditional or electric cycles.
