Cycling in the New Forest
  • Flat, safe, & traffic-free trails centred Brockenhurst & Burley
  • Over 100 miles of quiet trails and the 40mph speed limit
  • Picnic facilities and toilets at many of the Forest Car Parks
  • An abundance of village tea shops, local stores and forest pubs.

The varied terrain makes it a cycling destination for all ages and abilities but it is most suited to recreational riders, couples and family groups. The New Forest is the most recently formed National Park in the UK but the fragile forest environment gives home to many species of flora and fauna which need protection from the pressure weighed down by recreational use. With over 13 million visitor days spent in the New Forest every year, the management of recreational use is crucial to the future of the New Forest habitats, and as cyclists, we need to ensure we keep to the designated trails.

If you are not starting your tour from our hire centre or shop in Brockenhurst ,please find a ‘cycling friendly’ car park when starting your ride with your own bikes or you may find yourself in the wrong part of the New Forest where cycling is not allowed. There authorised cycle network is now well waymarked by the Forestry Commission with over 400 numbered posts to ensure you manage to stick to your planned route.

  • Please keep to way marked gravel tracks when cycling off road
  • Always ride in single file when roads are narrow
  • Never ride more than two abreast
  • Make sure you are visible by wearing bright colours
  • Always use lights after dark or in poor visability
  • Plan your route to be out of the Forest by dusk
  • Be aware of animals, other cyclists, pedestrians and drivers
  • Keep your speed down, give way to walkers
  • Keep well away from any work going on in the Forest
  • Do not pass any vehicle loading timber until you’ve been told it’s safe to do so

Experience The Wildest Nature

There are many great places to cycle from in the new forest and we think you should try them all! Whether it’s Burley, Beaulieu, Lyndhurst or Ashurst, you will find varied scenery and quiet forest trails nearby. But when we opened in 1993, we chose Brockenhurst for a reason!

 

  • The biggest choice of flat, safe traffic-free New Forest trails centred around Brockenhurst and plenty of space to get to know your bike before hitting the trails. See our route page to choose your next adventure.
  • You can park at our hire centre in the station car park from only £3.50 per day before choosing which direction of the compass you want to head in. The off-road trail head for some of our routes is only ¼ mile from the station (via a quiet residential avenue), unlike the busier roads in other villages!
  • The best branded hire bikes! We believe in setting the standards for others to follow and our main fleet bikes now all have disc brakes, suspension, puncture proof tyres and comfort saddles.
  • Lots of local shops to buy snacks and picnics from. We can even offer you an inclusive picnic or pub lunch cycling package or a short tour of the Isle of Wight via ferry from nearby Lymington.
