Rendlesham Forest

If you’re fairly confident on your bike on dirt and gravel surfaces and ready to broaden your cycling horizons, our Off-Road Steady rides are ideal. At a comfortable pace, and possibly with some modest hills along the way, there is barely a metre of tarmac in sight on these rides so come and enjoy the scrunch of gravel and the squelch of mud under your tyres with us! Rides are between 6 and 15 miles long, at a moderate pace of between 7 and 10 miles an hour.

Join us on this pleasant meander through Rendlesham Forest around the abandoned "Cold War" airfield of RAF Woodbridge.  During WWII, the Fog Investigation and Dispersal Operation system, or FIDO for short, was developed here to enable emergency landings. It was also the location of a famous UFO sighting in 1980!  We might not see any aliens but we will have a great time riding bikes in a beautiful off-road environment.  If a flat, 9 mile gentle ride in amazing surroundings is your idea of fun then this is definitely the ride for you!

Bike Hire:  Third party bike hire is available with Avocet Sports.  Bikes can be booked in advance.  For more details please visit http://www.eastcoastmountainbiking.co.uk/hire.htmlBike hire is run independently of British Cycling and Sky and we do not have control over this facility.
