The Euston Estate & Event
Situated just south of Thetford, Norfolk directly off the A1088.
Plenty of easy parking just inside the entrance.
Finish Area, Sign On, collection of transponder & identification number in the next field.
The whole estate is a mixture of open parkland, woods and farming which is mostly arable in a gently rolling landscape. The soils range from being a bit sandy in some areas whilst other areas can be a bit muddy.
The circuit envisaged is circa 15km but will not be finalised until nearer the time to ensure the best possible for your enjoyment. We all know that weather conditions and farm use can drastically alter the going overnight! The circuit is ALL OFFROAD & we don’t want you to have to walk any of it!
It will take you across parkland, along farm tracks consisting of stone/road shavings, hard packed soil & grass through woodland and arable farming areas.
I managed to easily ride all of it in January on a MTB & apart from a few muddy patches, on a road bike with 25c tyres.
We know you will enjoy it but nearly 3 hours 'offroad' won't be easy.
