The New Forest Tour 2024 - SATURDAY

Saturday 21 September 2024 | Gang Warily

Online entry has now closed. As this event is sold out, on the day entries will NOT be available.

The New Forest Tour takes riders on an adventure through the beautiful New Forest National Park through the wide sweeping roads often lined with the local roaming livestock.

All four routes start at Gang Warily recreation ground in the Southeast corner of the Forest and head immediately south to the coast at Lepe. You'll be able to see out to the Isle of Wight before turning back into the heart of the New Forest.

The Long route takes in the whole boundary of the National Park so you'll be in for 160km of charming scenery, magical woodlands and not to mention the possibility of spotting some of the local deer community due to the event taking place during rutting season.

Our New Forest events are always incredibly popular so if you're thinking about taking part, don't leave it too late and enter as soon as possible.

Of course, you’ll be rewarded for all your efforts as you cross the finish line to receive a finisher's medal and other goodies from our partners. We look forward to seeing you on the start line in September.
