Cycling in our area

With local country parks, a major cycle route and the New Forest on our doorstep there are plenty of opportunities for cyclists of all abilities when you stay at Back of Beyond.

Local country parks

In addition to nearby Hurn Forest, there’s a great country park, Moors Valley,  just three miles away. This park offers plenty of cycle routes through the park and into Ringwood Forest. It also has a bike hire centre as well as activities, toilets, a shop and cafe.

The Castleman Trailway

Within 10 minutes of our park there’s a great 16 mile cycle route, the Castleman Trailway. It’s a former railway line connecting Ringwood with Brockenhurst, Wimborne and Poole. This is a useful route for accessing Ringwood and the New Forest or for exploring the local forests and heathlands on the way to Poole.

The New Forest

The New Forest has over 100 miles of off-road trails! See New Forest cycling information, or download the map.

Cycle Hire

In the nearby New Forest village of Burley, cycle hire is run by New Forest Cycling. In Brockenhurst, Cycleexperience offer some great cycling routes. If you are in Lymington, New Forest Bikes offer a hire service and will also deliver.
