Here at Haldon Forest, we’re keen to encourage riders from a very early age and have hire options for toddlers from 9 old months upwards. From child seats to buggies, tag-a-longs, recumbent’s and trike’s, there’s something for the whole family to enjoy the trails here. (Pic courtesy of Verity Hayward)

Night Rides

If you’ve never ridden in the forest at night, the idea probably sounds unnatural. Talk to those who have however, and they’ll tell you it’s a fantastic experience, putting a totally different spin on the adrenaline of riding your favourite trails. Every Wednesday throughout Winter, we offer guided night rides including light hire and bike hire if required. We run two groups to cater for beginners and experienced riders alike. Pre-booking is essential, so give us a call on 01392 833768 to reserve your place. (Pic courtesy of Chris Davidson)
