Cycling gets you outdoors into the fresh air, where there are fabulous views to nourish you. It is a great way to get your body moving, and to improve your physical fitness.

More importantly it's also great fun and very sociable.

These rides are designed as a gentle reintroduction to cycling for those who haven't been on a bike for years. They take place on purpose built, graded tracks at Haldon forest, so there’s no need to worry about traffic. There’s a café on site if you fancy a coffee or tea after the ride.

Your leader is Cathy Debenham, a cycling enthusiast and a qualified British Cycling Mountain Bike Leader.

You will need a mountain bike (this is ideal, but a hybrid is OK on the beginners trails). If you don't have a suitable bike then you can get started by hiring one from Forest Cycle Hire at the Haldon Forest site, and we can recommend places to buy new or second hand.

If you are worried about joining a group ride, you can arrange an hour's 1-2-1 with to build your confidence first.
