Tour de Broads – South : Event Information


— Sunday 30th April 2017
— Great Yarmouth Sea Life Gardens


 New for 2017

The inaugural Tour de Broads SOUTH event will make it's debut on regional sportive calendar on 30th April 2017. With so much to see on the rolling and picturesque country roads around the Tour de Broads National Park, we felt it was impossible to fit it into one sportive so we have created an extra event this year to showcase what the Southern Broads have to offer.

Departing from the Gt Yarmouth Sea Life Gardens, the Tour De Broads: South, will give you the opportunity to explore the stunning Southern Broads of Norfolk and Suffolk.

The various routes will head off towards Fritton Lake and Oulton Broad, crossing the River Waveney in Suffolk. The longer routes will give you the opportunity to tour the Northern Broads, crossing the Wensum at Norwich and the Bure at Wroxham or Acle allowing you to take in the beauty of the surrounding Norfolk Broads before heading back to the coast at Great Yarmouth where all finishers will be presented with a medal and a voucher for free chips or ice cream.
