Welcome in the Spring with this beautiful ride in the New Forest.

There's a choice of four routes, all starting and finishing in Brockenhurst. The three longer routes cross a landscape mixing open heath and mature woodlands, while the quiet roads and gentle hills make the shorter routes 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 and thoroughly enjoyed the ride. It was really well organised, 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
