Many parts of the forest, hidden to the motorist, are easily accessible by bicycle on designated gravel tracks.

Once you get into the open forest, there are family friendly, safe off-road and gentle cycle routes, with tracks through the open heathland and sheltered woods. More active folk can cycle to nearby villages such as Lyndhurt, Burley and Rhinefield. If you do not have your own bikes, Cycle hire is avalible all year round.

Further information regarding cycling routes can be found here or the Forestry Commission website bike pages here.
