Do you love rough and exhilarating downhill rides? Or speed-racing on roads with beautiful scenery? Or simply enjoying flat and safe cycling with the family and maybe teach your youngest how to ride? Bournemouth has all the options for every age and ability.

From scenic flats to strenuous hill rides, Bournemouth and the surrounding areas are a magnet for cyclists. There are also several bike hire options if you haven’t got your own, making life easy. Bike hire and cycling is great for groups and can easily be catered for if organised in advance.

Although it’s not permitted to cycle on the prom between 10am and 6pm in July and August due to the high amount of people, you can however ride between the Piers on the road at all times throughout the year which still makes it a great way to get around out wonderful coastline.
