The New Forest on two wheels

Welcome to the New Forest, where two wheels are definitely better than four, if you truly want to experience all the great things we have to share. Ancient woodland, heaths, pretty villages and a 40-mile ‘secret’ coast.

We have miles of off-road tracks and low speed-limit roads, where you can enjoy easy cycling and see thousands of free-roaming ponies and cattle.

The off-road cycle network is easily accessible by rail or road so you can bring your own bikes or hire them when you arrive – we’re just 89 minutes from London Waterloo.

We have nearly 70 hotels, guest houses, B&B’s and self-catering cottages signed up to our Cyclists’ Welcome scheme – you’ll be assured of all the help and assistance you need to enjoy the perfect New Forest cycling break.
