Forest Discovery Ride
Alice Holt Forest, near Farnham (location on Google Maps)
At East Hampshire Cycling for All we are offering the chance to enjoy gentle relaxed cycle rides through the beautiful Alice Holt Forest.
If you don’t usually ride a bike, or you’re nervous about taking to the road on two wheels, the traffic-free off-road tracks of the forest offer a great chance to discover cycling, and a good opportunity to rediscover bikes if you’ve not ridden for a while. Maybe you’ve been unwell, or don’t feel as fit as you used to. Or maybe you’ve just got out of the habit!
As well as being one of the best ways to keep fit, lose weight and stay healthy, cycling lets you explore places you could never reach by car. And Alice Holt Forest has a wealth of plant and animal life just waiting to be discovered.
I will be providing friendly advice on how to make the most of your cycling, with riding tips and safety checks to make riding as easy as possible as we cycle around the forest. I can help you make sense of your gears and even show you how to fix a puncture.
Helen Wallace, of the Forestry Commission, will be our guide to the forest, able to explain some of the history and life of Alice Holt Forest as we ride at a relaxed pace. You’ll see more of the forest environment than you could ever discover by car or on foot, and if you like, you can learn a thing or two about the species that make their home at Alice Holt.
Places are limited, so call me on 07717 721511 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place. If you don’t have access to a roadworthy bike, ask us if we can help you find one for the ride.
