The New Forest Classic

Saturday 9 April 2022 | Gang Warily

The New Forest Classic is now sold out. However, you can still enter our New Forest Tour cycling event, taking place at the same venue on 17th September 2022.



Our Classic Series is designed with all riders in mind. With four routes to choose from and nothing technical we would love to see as many riders joining us for one of our Classic events as possible.  

We're back in the New Forest in April for one of our most popular events in our Classic Series. Offering four different routes all starting from Gang Warily recreation ground that head immediately down to the coast at Lepe beach. 

If you're new to riding then check out our Rook ride which is just 17km in length but will give you a taste of the joys of exploring our Great British countryside on two wheels. If you're looking for something a little longer then choose between the; Short, Middle and Long routes that all weave through the New Forest National Park, taking in the beautiful scenery and magical woodlands along the way. You'll even see some of the roaming livestock on your way round including New Forest Ponies and Highland Cattle. 

Of course, you’ll be rewarded for all your efforts as you cross the finish line to receive a finishers medal and other goodies from our partners at Jimmy’s Iced Coffee, OTE Sports and Days.

Our New Forest events are always incredibly popular so if you are thinking about entering, we'd recommend you do so sooner rather than later.
