Free-wheeling fun in Leicester & The National Forest

Leicester, Leicestershire

From a city full of fresh cycling ideas, to off-road biking excursions in The National Forest.

Visitors to Leicester can explore the city and its heritage by bike as shopping streets and historic parts of the city are transformed for improved cycling access.  With planned trails linking city streets with parks and green spaces, guide-led rides and events such as the Ride Leicester Festival, the Castle Classic cycle race, Skyride and more, there is so much on offer for cyclists of all ages.

Further into the county of Leicestershire, cycling in The National Forest is a real family adventure. Here you can weave in and out of the woodlands and spot the wildlife on one of the surfaced cycle trails, try some bmx-ing or for more adventurous cycling, you can burn off the calories with a spin around the more challenging grassy routes.

There's a hire service available where they will sort you out with all the right equipment ranging from a tag-along to a tandem.
