About the Event

Want to give Ultra-cycling or a bikepacking race a go but don’t know where to start? Then Norfolk 360 is designed for you! It is the perfect beginners' Ultra-cycle event.

Norfolk 360 is a hybrid cycling event where you’ll ride both road and off-road segments which will lead you to some of Norfolk’s most iconic sights. Cycling from coast to castles, you will travel from Thetford Forest to the grand Holkham Hall, taking in breathtaking scenery along the way.

Our races are inspired by the compass and the course is designed in 4 loops that make up the 360-mile ride. Experience the flatlands of Norfolk in a self-supported ultra-cycle adventure that takes you to all 4-points of this beautiful county.

The 4 loops are designed to give you ownership of your race; you will have the option to do as much or as little as you want. There will be a central checkpoint that connects all four segments of the course, and each rider will have the option of cycling 112 miles, 212 miles, 300 miles, or the full 360. Don’t worry about carrying all the extra weight of camping equipment and spare clothes. You can leave a bag with all this at the central checkpoint and pick up what you need each time you come through. The central checkpoint is a safe environment inside a warm village hall where cyclists can sleep and store all their essentials. There will always be a race organiser on site to give guidance and support to the competitors.

Norfolk 360 is an opportunity for you to push yourself and see what you are capable of without the worry of ending up hundreds of miles away from the start. You will never be too far from safety and there are easier more direct routes back to the central point. The varying distances are designed to allow the normal club cyclist to take on the adventure of an ultra-cycle without the need to commit to years of preparation or buying new expensive gear.

Norfolk 360 will take place at the start of April allowing you to put that winter training to good use. Starting early on the Saturday morning you have 36 hours to complete as much of the race as possible. 30% of the route will be off-road and 70% of the route will be road cycling; this split gives plenty of time to complete the full 360-mile compass. Designed for gravel bikes, the route is also cyclable using a road bike with chunky off-road tyres.

Every competitor will receive a prize for each completed segment; so sign up today and see how many loops you can complete! There will be prizes for the top 3 Females, Males, and Pairs. If you want to race as a pair please enter as separate riders and email us stating you want to race as a pair.
