Cycling is a brilliant exercise which is not only great for your health but can be enjoyed by the whole family. Cycling also gets you outside in the fresh air, linking you with nature and our natural environment.
For cyclists there are many beautiful places to visit in Newark and Sherwood and Nottinghamshire.
Cycling is an excellent way to get fit and have fun.
Planning where to ride
Nottinghamshire has some great areas for cycling, including some dedicated cycling facilities. A few are listed below, but you can find much more if you explore:
In Clumber Park, a local National Trust property, there are more than 20 miles of cycle routes around the lake or through the woodland. Clumber park also hosts many Cycleabout events throughout the year.
Sherwood Pines near Clipstone has woodland paths as well as all levels of mountain bike tracks.
Sherwood Pines is perfect for a day of outdoor adventure and in additional to cycling offers walking trails, adventure play parks, parkland and picnic areas, Go Ape and a brilliant café for refuelling. You can take your own bikes or hire them on site from the friendly team in the shop.
Breeze cycle rides for women have a very active programme in Newark and Sherwood.
Local Breeze champions organise fun, social, local bike rides that go at a speed that suits everyone. The rides often start or finish at a cafe so everyone can have a drink and a chat. Rides usually range between 5 and 25 miles.
