As part of British Cycling’s partnership with Bournemouth Borough council, we are working with Wessex Accessibility club to promote bike rides which are easy for anyone to join in. Ride leaders Terry, a hand cyclist, and his partner Charlie led thirty riders on different bikes on a great route enjoying views of the dunes, and a seaside café stop. British Cycling’s recreational cycling officer was on hand to promote all our local led-rides and informal cycling opportunities including Breeze (our women’s network) and social cycling groups.

Where to ride
There are a number of amazing routes and venues in the Bournemouth area – there really is something for everyone.
Bourne Valley Greenway
Greenways are largely car-free, off-road routes which are sustainable transport corridors for shared use by cyclists, walkers and where practical horse-riders. The Bourne Valley Greenway was launched in May 2004 and runs continuously for 6.5km between Bournemouth Town Centre and Canford Heath. The Greenway goes through Bournemouth Gardens, Talbot Heath and Bourne Bottom. By Cycle the route takes around 30 minutes from Ringwood Road near the Mountbatten Arms Roundabout to Bournemouth Town Centre, making this a viable means of commuting.

One of Dorset's gentlest way-marked routes, this 16 mile tailway follows much of the old Dorchester to Southampton railway line. The trailway takes you through some of East Dorset's stunning landscape.
