Cycle Experience – New Forest


With over more than 20 years experience in New Forest cycle hire we know everything there is to know about riding bikes in the forest. We are also in the priviledged position where we are able to offer a unique experience that you cannot get anywhere else in the New Forest.

There are many great places to cycle from in the new forest and we think you should try them all! Whether it’s Burley, Beaulieu, Lyndhurst or Ashurst, you will find varied scenery and quiet forest trails nearby. But when we opened in 1993, we chose Brockenhurst for a reason!

  • The biggest choice of flat, safe traffic-free New Forest trails centred around Brockenhurst and plenty of space to get to know your bike before hitting the trails. See our route page to choose your next adventure.
  • You can park at our hire centre in the station car park from only £3.50 per day before choosing which direction of the compass you want to head in. The off-road trail head for some of our routes is only ¼ mile from the station (via a quiet residential avenue), unlike the busier roads in other villages!
  • The best branded hire bikes! We believe in setting the standards for others to follow and our main fleet bikes now all have disc brakes, suspension, puncture proof tyres and comfort saddles.
  • Lots of local shops to buy snacks and picnics from. We can even offer you an inclusive picnic or pub lunch cycling package or a short tour of the Isle of Wight via ferry from nearby Lymington.

The varied terrain makes it a cycling destination for all ages and abilities but it is most suited to recreational riders, couples and family groups.

“Hired a tandem bike from these guys – excellent service with a good range of maps. Great experience riding a tandem around the New Forest – thankfully there aren’t many hills!”
