New Forest Cycling Week
12pm Friday 26th July to 10 am Saturday 3rd August 2019
The New Forest Cycling Week was founded in 1975 and for 35 years was based at the Forestry Commission Roundhill campsite near Brockenhurst. In 2010 the New Forest Cycling Week moved to the UK Youth Activity Centre at Avon Tyrrell Manor near Burley.
The Rally attracts approximately 200 attendees each year. It is an informal rally for cycle campers, free from pressure and over-organisation, yet offering activity for all those who wish to join in. It's a rally for cycling families, small groups and individuals whether new to camping or, indeed, more experienced and age is immaterial! There is plenty to see or explore in this unique area. The many minor roads and tracks make enjoyable and safe riding for families and younger riders and there is normally something taking place every day. Various on site activities take place during the evening. Other activities during the week include children’s time trial, swimming, Bar-B-Q and on Wednesday use of the Avon Tyrrell adventure facilities for children using their instructors.
