Mother's Day Ideas - Cycling in the New Forest

Mother's Day Ideas - Cycling in the New Forest

To make the day as magical as possible and enjoy some quality time together with your mum, we have a unique gift idea. Have a peek at our Mother's Day suggestion - a cycling adventure in the New Forest!

Step 1: Hire your bikes.

Book online for yourself and just let us know in store you like to use the Mother's day deal so your mum gets her bike for free!*

We have a variety of bikes you can choose from. Our hybrid bikes (traditional bikes) are perfect for leisure rides whilst the mountain bikes are suitable for any off-road adventure. Don't forget - we also have our super-charged electric bikes if you prefer to have some boost whizzing through the Forest!

Step 2: Pick a route.

Our bike routes are all stunning but if you prefer to take it easy and enjoy the beautiful scenery around you, the Ornamental Woods route will be the perfect match for you and your mum!

On route you will see the scenic Arboretum with the Tall Trees, New Forest ponies and if you're lucky - you can come across deer! Don't miss out on the ice-cream van at Black Water selling delicious New Forest-made ice-cream.

Step 3: Stop for a tasty treat.

There are many quality places around us to visit and not be let down. Here is our best choice for Mother's Day:

Escape Gin Bar - Gin-tastic!

Located only 5 minutes away from us in the historic Thatched Cottage Hotel, the stunning Escape Gin Bar serves fantastic Gin Tasting Flight from their curated collection of over 300 gins, 100 of which are on their amazing gin menu at any time.

Explore and experience something different, including their Local Flight and their intriguing Mystery Flight! We would recommend visiting after your ride to stay on the safe side.

The Oak Inn - The ultimate pub lunch!

One of the best pubs in the New Forest, the Oak Inn at Bank charms with a great seasonal menu and a wide selection of quality drinks.

The pub is on route, around 45 minutes cycle from our hire centre and it will be the perfect lunch stop for you and your mum! Make sure to book a table for the day.

Rhinefield House Hotel - A luxury afternoon tea!

Located very conveniently on route, Rhinefield is called 'the jewel of the New Forest'. This will be the best option if you like to surprise your mum with magical atmosphere, a glass (or two) of champagne and a tasty afternoon cream tea! Book online here.
