Cycling is the perfect way to enjoy the local area whilst getting fit and boosting your wellbeing
From scenic flats to strenuous hill rides, Bournemouth and the surrounding areas are perfect for novice and experienced cyclists. With miles of beach promenade to explore in both directions the seafront is a great place for a cycle ride.
Heading west will take you to Sandbanks and over the chain ferry to the Purbecks, while heading east takes you towards Hengistbury Head, and over to Mudeford on the ferry. The promenade is flat and traffic free, perfect for families with children.
Please note cycling on the promenade is permitted except between 10am-6pm in July and August.
Hiring a bike couldn’t be easier, Front Bike Hire on Bournemouth seafront is located 200 metres East of the pier, and has a great range including cruiser, mountain and children’s bikes.
