Purbeck cycle rides

There are seven cycle rides around the Purbeck area which are suitable for a variety of ages and abilities, ranging from 8 to 47 miles (12.8km to 75.2km).

All routes are circular, with five being self-guided and two routes signposted.  They all have an accompanying leaflet with a map.  There is also additional information in the leaflets about interest points that you will pass along the way, as well as how to follow the Countryside Code (opens in a new window).
