SOUTH COAST OVERLAND – LEWES to THE NEW FOREST

With THE WOODS CYCLERY and The OVERLAND 

Our 3 Day South Coast Overland trip starts out at the foot of the South Downs in the historical town of Lewes. Meet us for coffee and bacon sarnies in a local Lewes cafe and then It won’t be too long before we use our local knowledge to take you on this challenging route of excellent gravel paths, singletrack, bridleways, coastal cyclepaths and country lanes.  We will head west past Brighton, home of Morvelo and The OVERLAND, to our halfway overnight stay in a South Downs Bothy owned by the National Trust. 

From there we will be up early for breakfast and head out on Stage 2. We will  join The Monarch’s Way and head South West, towards the coast and into Portsmouth Harbour. With the help of two ferries and a traverse of the Isle of Wight we will arrive in the port of Lymington. We will ride up through the New Forest to our second night stop, hot showers and dinner at a hotel in Brokenhurst. 

On day 3, we enjoy a full english breakfast, leave the bikepacking bags at our base and ride up through the forest to meet the guys from The Woods Cyclery. We will top up our tanks with their coffee and cinnamon buns before continuing on a loop with them on some of their superb local trails. 

In the afternoon, riders will collect their kit and depart towards Brokenhurst station or onwards with their own adventure.

We personally speak to all our clients to discuss their suitability for the trip. We specialise in small group cycling trips to achieve a high-quality rider experience. We aim to ride all of our trips as 1 group and our experienced ride leaders can mix up the pace, split the group for a while and bring things back together when we need too. On some trips, we split down to two groups for the afternoon allowing those that want to really stretch their legs to do so. Our ride leaders will always be able to suggest a route back to base if at any time you prefer some time to take in the scenery and ride at your own pace.

All riders are required to bring their own bike and will recieve a full itinerary with GPX files 6 weeks prior to the ride. Sometimes we change the route depending on weather conditions / route closures.
