Starting point


The Viking Trail is a pleasant 45 mile round trip through countryside and coastal roads. Some of these roads have moderate traffic, but most of them are quiet country roads. On the coastal part of the ride, this is mostly on traffic free paths, shared with pedestrians. There are times when we have to get off our bikes and walk due to local by-laws at this time of year, if there are a lot of holiday makers we will take the coastal road route rather than the coastal path, but this is still a very pleasant ride if we do. On the ride you will cycle through some lovely villages, the harbour in Ramsgate is stunning when the sun is shining, and cycle passed the golden sands of Margate.
