Former road on top of causeway is now a cycleway and has recently been cut and cleared back to its full width. If you can fit through the narrow (600mm?) gaps at each end, it's a worthwhile alternative to the parallel back roads and definit ... [more]

Stickers for NCN route 1 and the North Sea Cycle Route (www.northsea-cycle.com)

Start of cycle link beside the A17 to Fosdyke bridge

Hidden in plain sight - a sign showing NCN route 1 turning left here.

Bridleway leading north from NCN route 1 towards the Wash

Windy Corner indeed - turning from a headwind to something of a tailwind.

Route sign in the fens north of Holbeach - it's actually shorter to turn left here, whereas Sustrans take cyclists around two sides of a triangle.

Route signs in the fens north of Holbeach

Not easy to see - NCN route 1 sign from the underpass leaving Holbeach to the north

Shared-use footway

Cycle Lane? Dodgy sign telling cyclists to cross to the shared-use footway on the other side of the road.

Sutton Bridge - most cyclists will use the footway, I suspect

Sutton Bridge - it looks as if both carriageways are No Entry - most cyclists will use the footway anyway

The most pleasant part of the route west from Kings Lynn to Sutton Bridge
