I'm going to ride the Norfolk coast this weekend.

Step 0: get everything packed and ready. That wasn't a really good start Arrived at the railway station, I realised I left my water bottles in the fridge. Had to go back and missed my train, I'll take the next one then... Haven't started, already 1h late! 😅

Step 1: train to Kings Lynn. I am lucky, they these trains are not impacted by the strike.

At least I sea you.

60k since this morning. All good but the rain decided to accompany me the whole way so far. A drizzle at first and then more continuous. With the draught, I won't complain but I wish it'll be a bit drier this afternoon.

Impromptu stop at Sheringham to buy... a nail clipper.

Always have your toe nails groomed before a long ride.

At least I had another chance to take some pics. (Not of my toes 😁)

Arrived at destination for today. 120k, I call it a day. Here is the view from my place.

Time to refill my personal battery!

After a nice little walk on the beach, enjoying the sunset, time to lay down. I'll stay in that little quirky caravan tonight.

@alfajet One or two #trains a day here in either direction. Missing a train would be a show-stopper.

@lopta @alfajet

at least in that area you get trains about every 1-2 hour even at weekend - before cars became widespread it was traditional to take a holiday by the seaside and travel by train. There's also an interesting heritage railway in the same area (which you can also take your bike on, although its £2.50 extra)

2.50 is the extra for the bike, not the full ticket.


I saw it today. Maybe we'll do it as a family another time. 😊

@alfajet @vfrmedia It's about £16.50 extra to take a #bicycle on the #Amtrak. Might be able to count a folder in place of a carry-on.

@lopta @vfrmedia
Yep that sucks. You've been trapped between the cars and the planes over there.

@lopta I knew that we had trains every hour, so I wasn't too worried. But still I was quite pissed when I found out.

If it was less frequent, I probably would have continued and tried to buy water bottles at the other end.
