3 Family Cycle Routes To Try Next Year

There’s nothing like getting out and about on your bike on a camping trip – what’s better than the feeling of freedom you get as you pedal power your way around the beautiful British countryside? If this is something you want you and your family to do more of in the new year, here are just some of the cycle routes that might tickle your pickle.

The New Forest Ride

This route follows part of the railway line between Brockenhurst and Wimborne, starting in the village and ending at Thorney Hill, just north of Bransgore. Brockenhurst itself is lovely and well worth an explore and you can have a well-earned cup of tea and a cake at the tea room at Holmsley Railway Station.

Berwick to Lindisfarne

This is a 15-mile bike ride so perhaps not suitable for those with very young children, but if you’re all fit and able definitely put it at the top of your to-cycle list. The terrain is a mixture of on and off-road paths and there are no hills, but if the weather is rough take care at Spittal as it can be tough going.

The Strawberry Line

This ride takes you from Yatton to Axbridge and Cheddar, and is a relatively short nine miles so doable for families. It’s mainly free from traffic and there are no steep gradients, while the countryside is lovely – lots of flat marshes, wooded valleys, cider apple orchards and even a tunnel through the Mendips!
