Explore the beautiful New Forest on two wheels on this self-guided cycle trip, which includes all-day cycle hire and a night’s accommodation in the Georgian town of Lymington on the coast for two people on a shared room basis. Dinner and a delicious cooked breakfast are also included as part of this forest-meets-the-coast getaway.Make your way to Cyclexperience’s new hire centre in the carpark at Brockenhurst Railway Station, just 5.3miles from The Mayflower. Hand over your voucher to pick up your professionally maintained bike, which will be set up and adjusted to fit you personally. You’ll get a helmet and a tool kit in a backpack (if something goes wrong, don’t worry — there’s an emergency number to call so that a mechanic can come out and fix your bike or swap it for another). Your cycle hire also includes a handle-mounted GPS unit preloaded with several routes that have been tried and tested. These include suggestions for places to stop off for coffee or a bite to eat. Our hosts can recommend a good route to suit your level of ability — just ask when you collect your bike — or you can select a route beforehand by visiting the cycle routes page on the Cyclexperience website.
Once you’ve spent the day in the saddle, return your bike, GPS unit, helmet and tool kit, and make your own way home — or head back to the Mayflower for a soak in a roll-top tub if you’ve booked an additional night with us.
