The New Forest Cycling Week was founded in 1975 and for 35
years was based at the Forestry Commission Roundhill campsite near
Brockenhurst. In 2010 the New Forest Cycling Week moved to the UK Youth
Activity Centre at Avon Tyrrell Manor near Burley.
This year 2014 is a very special year being the 40th
consecutive year the rally has been held. To help us celebrate this special
event we hope as many people as possible will attend the rally. We would ask
all our friends who have attended previous years to spread the word amongst
their cycling friends to make this rally extra special. First timers will be
given a warm welcome. It is not necessary to be a CTC member to attend this
rally, although there are many advantages to being a member.
The Rally attracts approximately 200 attendees each year. It
is an informal rally for cycle campers, free from pressure and
over-organisation, yet offering activity for all those who wish to join in.
It's a rally for cycling families, small groups and individuals whether new to
camping or, indeed, more experienced and age is immaterial! There is plenty to
see or explore in this unique area. The many minor roads and tracks make
enjoyable and safe riding for families and younger riders and there is normally
something taking place every day. Various on site activities take place during
the evening. On the Monday evening this year we plan to hire the large marquee
for a special 40th birthday cake celebration which will include wine and
cheese, children’s drinks and a special 40th birthday cake. This will be
followed by a progressive beetle drive which we hope will be lots of fun. Other
activities during the week include children’s time trial, swimming, Bar-B-Q and
on Wednesday use of the Avon Tyrrell adventure facilities for children using
The 2014 rally will run from the afternoon of Friday 25th
July until the morning of Saturday 2nd August. You're welcome to come for the
entire duration of the rally or whichever days are convenient to you.
