Park and cycle
With free parking and excellent facilities nearby, why not use Weymouth Park and Ride to access Weymouth and Portland by bike? Weymouth has over 24 miles of cycle routes and the car park is conveniently located at a hub in the off-road cycle network from which cyclists can access Weymouth and Fortuneswell on a network of mostly off-road cycle routes.
Use the routes with kids to give them a traffic free cycling experience where they can learn basic skills or put the bike in the car and finish part of your commute by cycle. There is direct access via off-road routes to the Weymouth Sea Life Centre.
Park and cycle for work and leisure
Feel like you need some exercise or want to get some fresh air on your way to work? Why not leave your car at the park and ride and cycle into Weymouth. Largely off-road cycle routes serve much of the area including Granby Industrial Estate and the Town Centre.
Explore Weymouth and Portland by bike and visit the beach or ride to your favourite cafe.
Park and stride
Weymouth and Portland has a wealth of walks, trails and local footpaths and bridleways to explore. You can travel through 20 million years of Jurassic time, explore flowery meadows and fossil-filled quarries and a wild coastline with an array of wildlife both on land and in the sea. One great way is walking the South West Coast Path which skirts around Weymouth and the Isle of Portland.
The beach is only a 20 minute walk from the Park and Ride through the beautiful Lodmoor RSPB nature reserve via a pushchair-friendly trail. The route passes Weymouth Sea Life Centre and other family attractions.
