The New Forest Cycling Week 27th July – 4th August


The New Forest Cycling Week was founded in 1975 and for 35 years was based at the Forestry Commission 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.  You can come for the whole week or just a few days.  The rally is for cycling families, small groups and individuals whether new to camping or more experienced, in tents, caravans and camper vans, and all ages are welcome, from babies to senior citizens! 
There is plenty to see and explore in this unique area. The many minor roads and tracks make enjoyable and safe riding for families and younger riders. There is a choice of forest rides every day led by volunteer Cycling UK members, but you are also free to do your own rides. 
There are normally various on site activities during the evening. Activities during the week include a barn dance, an opportunity to ride on the cycle track at Calshot, children’s time trial and on the Wednesday use of the Avon Tyrrell Adventure facilities for children using Avon Tyrrell’s instructors.  The week always ends with the Friday night barbecue and campfire.
