Journey 31 – 21 mile cycle ride in the New Forest

We are getting ever closer to our target figure of 500 fresh air miles so in an effort to narrow the gap further we once again straddled the saddle for a local cycle ride. After hiring bikes from a nearby shop (New Forest Activities) we set off into the woods or the New Forest to be exact, leaving Beaulieu behind us. We weaved through the trees on gravel tracks, up and down hills, following a map that lead us to Lyndhurst before returning a similar route, clocking up another 21 miles.

The New Forest is a super place to cycle in with families: a traffic-free, safe environment with lovely views and a range of different routes to take. Don’t forget to take a map along to work your way through the maze of different tracks.
