Grade of Trail:
Length of trail:8 miles
Trail is currently open
The extensive cycle network within Wendover Woods provides a route suitable for family cycling. It has climbs and descents, some parts are steep. Sections can be muddy in, or after, wet weather and therefore challenging to negotiate. Follow the waymarkers with green and white bicycles. Cycle stands are provided by the Cafe in the Woods and also another one by the start of the Fitness Trail.
We have carried out works on the boundary track on the west of the woodland and this route is now open for use by cyclists, increasing the length of the trail to 8 miles.
The trail is mainly on surfaced tracks and is not designed for a challenging mountain bike experience. If your interested in extreme cycling or a technical downhill experience then contact the local office on 0300 067 4160 and ask for details of Aston Hill Mountain Bike Area. Alternatively see rideastonhill.co.uk.
A new iPhone App for visitors to Forestry Commission sites is also available now. It's easy to use and has a number of features including downloadable trail maps. For more information visit www.forestry.gov.uk/mobileapp

Can you hire bikes at Wendover Woods ? If so please give details.
Forestry Commission Response
I'm afraid that we do not currently hire bikes. However, it is something we look forward to offering in the future.
