A beautiful ride through the New Forest, helping to raise vital funds for CoppaFeel - on a mission to promote early detection of breast cancer.
There's a choice of four routes, all starting and finishing in Brockenhurst. The three longer routes cross a landscape of open vistas and autumnal woodlands while quiet roads and gentle hills make the shorter rides ideal for families.
Family-friendly Route - 15 miles - following forest tracks so nearly all traffic-free. NOT suitable for racing bikes!
"My first ever cycling event and absolutely loved it. It was tough up some of those hills, but well worth it!!!" T.W
"My friend and I completed the 47 mile circuit this Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed the ride. It was really well organised and clearly marked and well marshalled. All the riders were friendly and the route was so pretty. I know the New Forest well and passed lots of places I recognized and pubs I'd been to. Thank you for making most of the last 10 miles downhill! This really helped our tiring legs!" Adrian Barker
