|Starting point:||Norden Car Park - postcode: BH20 5DW|
Sandbanks Ferry Terminal, Studland Village, Swanage (via Swanage Railway) and Wareham (via bus)
|Distance:||12 miles (19.2km) plus extended route|

Easy - Mostly off-road cycling and fairly flat
|Degree of difficulty:|
Due to the superb landscape, unique ecology and wildlife, as well as ongoing commercial operations, it has not been possible to upgrade the route in its entirety and it may be necessary to push your bicycle over sandy, rough or muddy sections, especially after rainy weather. Children should be carefully supervised.
For families with children older than ten years. A good hybrid or 'off road bike' is sufficient, a mountain bike is easier.
