This cycle ride starts from the busy market town of Wisbech, the capital of the surrounding Fens. From here the route heads west into rich farmland, past waterways, ancient sea banks and tiny Fenland villages, which are surrounded by hundreds of acres of orchards. In springtime these are enriched with the colour and scent of blossom, and in autumn, by delicious fruit. Along this route you can wander amongst the 100 year old apple trees in an old orchard, discover the treasures of ancient churches and taste the real ales at a Georgian brewery.Apples and Ale cycle guide
