What you'll do

I will meet you at the meeting place. We will have a planned route on approved New Forest cycle tracks that will take in some lovely views and maybe a few deer. I will bring limited mechanical backup and can take care of punctures and small issues with your bike if any occur.
The tourist cycle maps are not always clear and the routes don't all join up. When I'm out on my bike I often see people at junctions on the gravel tracks looking at maps or people that have accidentally found themselves on very busy roads. I can take those worries away allowing you to relax and take in the lovely surroundings.
The route will be relatively easy with a very few tough hills. The surfaces are mostly gravel and nothing that is very technical. It's impossible to completely avoid roads but this will be kept to a minimum and preference for quite roads are the order of the day.

I have lived in the New Forest for over 35 years and know the area extremely well through running, cycling and walking. I can navigate and find my way around almost anywhere without the need for maps and I don't get lost. I used to run a small bike building business so would be an ideal host to provide mechanical backup when out on a ride. I am a keen photographer (see my other "Experience" listing) which means I know many of the lovely landscape areas as well as where to find deer and other wildlife on the routes. My fitness means that I can plan a range of routes from very easy to as hard as you like.
If you also need accommodation Henry and Jo can provide rooms through Air BnB

An interesting ride with Henry, through the New Forest. He was very amiable and knowledgeable. Pity we didn’t see any deer, but the ride itself was very pleasant. The nice weather obviously helped!

Henry took my 10yo and I for a wonderful bike ride around the New Forest. He was super helpful taking us to some beautiful spots and really adjusting our route to help our little boy keep up, even pushing him up some of the hills when he started to flag. Highly recommended for a great way to explore the New Forest, with a knowledgeable and friendly guide.

Henry has a warm and friendly personality. He is very helpful and considerate. He catered for my individual needs by arranging a 3 hour ride at short notice. He also advised on suitable and reasonable bicycle hire. His knowledge of the New Forest was superb so we did not have to stop to navigate. He even mended a puncture for me. What a gent. Thank you Henry.
