Before your jaunt

Don't forget your essentials

Download cycle navigation

Before your jaunt, download and sign up to the free Komoot cycle navigation app at the Apple Store or Google Play. You can then follow our handy turn by turn route maps.

Countryside code

We love where we live and we want to take care of it. We ask you to do so too. Please read and respect the New Forest Code and the New Forest Cycling Code before your cycle.. 

Be prepared

All our bike hires include a safety helmet, lock and bicycle pump. Plan your journeys ahead, take a fully charged phone (remember signal can be patchy) and plenty of water. If you're going out alone, let somebody know where you are going.

Road safety and signage

Above all we want you to keep safe. Not every road, track or trail is suitable for bikes. Keep a close eye out for guidance signs that show you when you need to take extra precautions, give way to pedestrians or temporarily hop off and push. Know your Highway Code. Here is some useful guidance on road signs

Why not be a New Forest Ambassador,  put the car away and travel to the New Forest by public transport? Here's how.
