Cycling at Alice Holt
From the 18th November until further notice 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. Alongside this we will advertise 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 keep an eye on our website where details will be posted soon: 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
We are currently exploring with CTC the possibility of being able to continue providing opportunities for adaptive (all ability) cycling. While this opportunity will be restricted to existing volunteers and committed groups rather than general hire, we hope to be able to resolve this quickly and provide further information shortly.
We are working on the latest edition of our newsletter and events programme, which will cover the period January - June 2014.
When it's ready we will send it to everyone on our mailing list and you will be able to download it too.
Check out our Events at Alice Holt page to see what's coming up!

They include practical activities, questions and information.

They’re working to give local people in the Amazon ways of making a fair living from the forest, without cutting down the trees.
