The Fenlanders Chapter of the Harley Owners Group is heading out on its annual rally in the district.

Today they will ride out from Fakenham Market Place at 11am and head to Barsham, Houghton St Giles and Little Walsingham before reaching Wells quay at 11.30am.

They then head along the coast road, via Blakeney and Cley, arriving at Sheringham at around 12.15pm where they will stay until around 3pm.

Members have been camping at Fakenham Racecourse and enjoying the north and west Norfolk countryside since Thursday.

Yesterday they rode out from Fakenham to Hunstanton and back.

Road captain Neil Sturman, who lives in Great Ryburgh, near Fakenham, said yesterday: “Tonight we’re going to party hard at Fakenham Racecourse and we’re all looking forward to the big ride out tomorrow.

“Our members are from across Norfolk and Suffolk but we have people here from all over the country.

“There are some people here from as far away as Holland and Scotland.

“We love coming here to ride out and party hard and people here are always very welcoming.”

  • I certainly enjoyed seeing them - a very impressive sight and sound. Also, lots of happy visitors spending money in the local area. The Fenlanders weekend is always a welcome addition to the Fakenham area calendar and I hope they all enjoyed their stay.

  • "The sound of 300 motorbikes can be enjoyed" Not my definition of enjoyment. Noise pollution from bikes, radios etc is nuisence the council ignore

  • A little bit of noise is a small price to pay for all the money they raise for charity
