Just moved house, & I'm now on the East edge of the New Forest - I've yet to venture out for a ride, but I certainly will at the weekend! Anyone from the area on here? Any good routes?
Cheers! :)

i'm towards lepe beach, bout 1/2 mile from the edge of the forest, there are some good trails but watch out for those pesky forest rangers, they hate you riding on anything but gravel tracks! :x

cyclexperience (01590 624204) is based in brockenhurst and they have a liitle pack of route maps, very basic but gives you a good way of finding your way around, some of them are a bit short or basic terrain but they have to be on legal trails to be published, but they do include pub stops!!!!! :D i'm sure that if you follow those routes you will see the proper trails!

isle of wight is good, much more up and down than the forest, i'm off there in a minute! :D :D

Cheers :)

I'm not entirely new to the area - I've only come from Dorset, just don't know where to start with the forest! Blimmin annoying that we're not allowed to just go anywhere... :evil:

Don't think I'd survive the road ride, sorry! :lol:

Not really the New Forest but there's an evening ride every Weds evening from Sandbanks ferry starting at 18:20. It's a cracking ride over the Purbecks with lots of hills and views. There's normally two groups, fast and very fast (compared to my normal pace). Much better than the NF.
