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 their instructors.

The 2014 rally will run from 12.00 pm on Friday 25th July until 10.00 am on Saturday 2nd August. You're welcome to come for the entire duration of the rally or whichever days are convenient to you.

For 2014 we are pleased to advise the daily camping fee for Adults will remain at 8.50, for children between 5-17 the rate will be reduced to 3.50 (last year it was 5.50 and only up to age 14 years) under 5 will be free. Adult campers travelling by cycle in the special lightweight camping area will be charged 7.00.
