Immerse yourself in historic woodland and share winding country lanes with free-roaming wildlife on our 2 day guided, supported, all inclusive cycling weekend experience in the New Forest.

Think of 'Escape The City to the New Forest' as part seaside break and part forest retreat. The magic of this trip is the variety. One minute we'll be enjoying the tranquil natural sounds of an ancient forest (one of few remaining in Europe), the next plunging into the ocean and enjoying delicious locally-produced ice cream at one of the beautiful beaches overlooking the Solent.
