A Sunday ride in New Forest

Over the last few weeks it has been very obvious in the UK that the seasons are changing and that autumn is here, very soon to be followed by winter. On my daily travels I have been in awe with the beautiful colours and was desperate to find a destination that would allow me to capture the beauty of autumn.

The research began and after stumbling across this article in the telegraph, I decided New Forest was going to be the place I had to go.

The idea of riding a bike through this National Park and the thought of possibly bumping into wild horses seemed like a perfect way to spend a sunday. I looked on New Forest’s website and found a bike hire shop in Lyndhurst (the centre of New Forest).  At only £10 a bike for the entire day it was a serious steal and Billy was a super friendly chap who went through all the best routes.

And so the adventure began….

It didn’t take us long to find these two.

Our next stop was Rhinefield House which was highly recommended by Billy at the cycle shop.
