Biking in The New Forest



There can be few other places in England where the ancient landscape has remained so unchanged. When William The Conqueror named the area his "new hunting forest", little could he imagine that nearly 1000 years later his "Nova Foresta" would still retain its mystery and romance.
The New Forest is a fantastic place for cycling with miles and miles of traffic free tracks leading you right into the heart of the forest with few hills to worry about. With its amazing fauna and flora it is the right place for a weekend break.


Highlights: Miles and miles of quality trails free of traffic. Amazing variety of wild species, ponies and wild deer. Great English pubs, local specialties and refreshing ales. Historic villages and typical thatched cottages. Traditionally brewed cider from the heart of The New Forest.
