3 days/ 3 nights itinerary
Cycling and outdoor activity is physically demanding.
A good level of fitness is required for the rides. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are sufficiently fit and healthy to complete rides and to ensure you have the necessary skill and capability to do so.
Arrive at base camp on night one between 18:00 – 21:00 and settle in.
Breakfast at base campsite (lovely locally sourced stuff). Roll out at 9am for c. 35 miles of wonderful riding on the stunning Purbeck Penninsula and Jurassic Coast. The route ramps up quickly onto ridges and cliff paths providing jaw-dropping views over the stunning landscape which includes the Studland Nature Reserve, Poole Harbour and the dramatic coastline which is never very far off the routes. Drop in and dip into the ocean at the idylic Chapman’s Pool before heading back up another feisty climb up the Compass - with its famous Dog on the roof (brew).
Breakfast and ride out for your second day at 9 for a 25 mile day on the trails. From high vantage points you’re sure to be blown away by views across Studland and dramatic cliffs and cosy coves below. Jam-packed with more epic scenery the day 2 highlights include Corfe Castle which dominates the landscape and provides a unique view and perspective of the surrounds - and none other that Harry’s Rocks which are spectacular feature of the peninsula. Loop back to base camp at the end of an epic day of riding on spectacular coastal trails and celebrate!If you’ve come by train – we’ll drop you off at Wareham station on Sunday evening.
