Cycling at Alice Holt
Currently we are unable to offer cycle hire facilities due to the withdrawal of Quench Cycles from site.
You can continue to enjoy our cycle tracks and trails during this time.
As part of the redevelopment of Alice Holt, a project to convert existing buildings to a new cycle facility will commence shortly with an intended delivery date of Spring 2014.
We are currently advertising a business opportunity for cycle hire with the intention of acquiring a new business partner to coincide with the opening of the new building. If you are interested in this opportunity visit our website: www.forestry.gov.uk/tenders
Quench Cycles will be concentrating their attentions and resources on their Bedgebury operation in Kent, in which endeavour we wish them every success.
Cycling for All
Adaptive (all ability) cycling sessions will be run by volunteers over this period of change. Sessions take place on Thursday mornings.
