Bike hire

Cycling in the New Forest gives you a chance to truly experience all the great things we have to offer and get close to our amazing nature. Ancient woodland, heaths, pretty villages and a 40-mile ‘secret’ coast are just some of the amazing things we have to offer cyclists. Plus, here in the New Forest, the real bonus is there are over 100 miles of car-free cycle trails, so hire one of our own Pashley bikes, stock up with one of our hampers and spend the day exploring.
