The Forest of Dean is a cyclists dream. Whether you're a novice or experienced mountain biker hungry for downhill forest tracks, or a road cyclist wanting winding country lanes and short hill climbs - the forest terrain offers it all. Suitable for families too, the family trail from Cannop Valley, provides safe cycling for children of all ages, away from traffic and surrounded by beautiful woodlands.
Throughout the summer months concerts are held in the Bandstand. Take along a picnic, sit by the river and listen to live music. What a great way to spend a summer's afternoon.
Check the calendar for local sportives. The Wye Tour and Wye Valley Brewery are just two that are planned around this area.
There is so much to see, visit, taste and enjoy in the Forest of Dean. Try canoeing or kayaking, or do some high wire rope courses. Or simply, enjoy walking along the forest trails, looking at the wildlife and taking in the beautiful nature that surrounds you. In fact, there's so much to see and do, and places to visit, you might want to make a short-list before you arrive!
On bike or foot, take a break and have a bite to eat at Beechenhurst lodge or Pedalabikeaway where you can enjoy and join the cycling hub.
