If you'd like to try the easier trails at Haldon Forest Park, but lack confidence, or would like company, this is the ride for you. Led by British Cycling accredited mountain bike leader, this will be a gentle introduction to the blue routes, with plenty of tips to help you build your skills and grow in confidence.
To come on this ride you must be confident riding a bike on the road or wide forest tracks. You will need a mountain bike (hybrids are not suitable) and a helmet that fits properly, has a CE mark and is in warranty. Bikes and helmets are available for hire at Forest Cycle Hire (http://www.forestcyclehire.co.uk/). If you want to hire a bike for an evening ride, you will need to pick it up before they close at 5pm, and return it the following morning. I advise booking in advance.
