Cycling

Many young children enjoy spending their holidays cycling around the park, while parents can take comfort in the 5mph speed limit on vehicles travelling around Lucksall. Children must be supervised at all times.

Cycling directly out of the park on the main road is not recommended for families due to the speed limit and the nature of the road but a 5 minute drive away is Haugh Woods. Haugh Woods is 850 acres of woodland with a car park and the woodland is split up with many fire roads making for perfect family cycle trails. Large sections are flat with a few short down/uphill sections. 

35 minutes drive away is the Cannop Cycle Centre in the Forest of Dean, offering a safe traffic free environment for you and your family to enjoy. The riding varies from family friendly trails to full on downhill tracks and everything in between. 45 minutes drive away is Dean Forest Cycles, offers the perfect starting point to get out and explore all the Forest of Dean has to offer.

Bikes are available to hire from Pedal a bike away:  http://www.pedalabikeaway.co.uk/  and http://www.deanforestcycles.co.uk/
