For those of you wishing to explore Dorset by bike we can offer you facilities to make sure your bikes are always secure and well maintained.
We are able to offer a secure place to store your bikes over night. The storage area has been specifically built to make sure that your bikes stay dry and do not get damp, with dehumidifiers and heaters used when needed.
We are also able to offer you access to a hose to wash down you bikes after a long day exploring.
Our local area has fantastic opportunities for cyclists:
-Wareham forest and the Sika Trail- offers gravel 2m wide tracks for the more novice cyclists and lots of off road mountain biking tracks for those wanting a bit more adrenaline. The Sika Trail involves lots of different length routes all marked so little chance of getting lost! There is also very good off road parking and a picnic area.
- The Coastal Path- It forms part of the 630 mile South West Coast Path National Trail. Dramatic landscapes and seascapes are revealed with every twist and turn along this coastal walk.
The path provides access to all kinds of stories: an exceptional record of the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods of the Earth's history - the 'walk through time'; classic landforms straight out of geography text books - the Black Ven landslide complex, Chessil Beach, Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove; stories of farming, both ancient and modern, of smuggling, quarrying, fishing and of war and fortification; and wildlife that is as rich, varied and specialised as anywhere in the country.
The path links together coastal hamlets, villages and towns and simply gives people the opportunity to access all that is special about the Dorset coast.
- The Purbecks- Offers lots of off road cycling, taking in views such as old Harry Rock, Studland Beach and Poole Harbour. It also offers great opportunities for the more experience road cyclists with lots of tough up hills and very fast down hills.
- Moors Valley Country Park- has a large variety of routes all marked on difficulty, ranging from 2 mile 'forest road' routes to challenging mountain biking routes. Cycle hire is also available here.
