Organiser's Description

We will take you on an adventure through the beautiful New Forest National Park through the wide sweeping roads often lined with the local roaming livestock.

All four routes start at Gang Warily recreation ground in the South East corner of the Forest and head immediately south to the coast at Lepe. You'll be able to see out to the Isle of Wight before turning back into the heart of the New Forest.

The Long route takes in the whole boundary of the National Park so you'll be in for 160km of charming scenery, magical woodlands and not to mention the possibility of spotting some of the local Deer community due to the event taking place during Rutting season.

Our New Forest events are always incredibly popular which is why we hold the event over both weekend days, so make sure you join us for at least one... but maybe both?

Of course you’ll be rewarded for all your efforts as you cross the finish line to receive a finishers medal, beer from Freedom Brewery and other goodies from our partners at Jimmy’s Iced Coffee and OTE sports. We look forward to seeing you on the Start line in September.

Our Tour Series events are designed to give you the chance to ride in some of the most beautiful parts of the UK and challenge yourself to distances you wouldn’t do every weekend.
