I love cycling along the Family Cycle Trail in the Forest of Dean. Prior to the Lockdown in March 2020 Leonard Cheshire's Gloucestershire Wheels For All project had just started delivering inclusive cycling sessions from the Forestry England Mallards Pike site near Parkend in the Forest of Dean. There is a 2km circular accessible route suitable for adapted bikes, that starts and finishes close to the car park, toilets (just reopened) and cafe (currently serving takeaways only). We are looking forward to restarting our sessions (keep an eye on the You're Welcome website to find out when) but in the meantime if you have your own bikes and a means of transport, I thoroughly recommend the beautiful, blissful and life-enhancing forest environment. That 2km route links with the main 11km Family Cycle Trail which has several flat stretches and is mostly manageable on a recumbent trike - but does have some uphill stretches where you might need a bit of help from a companion unless you are super fit and have lots of gears! If you would like more information please contact Project Lead MaryClare via the You're Welcome directory.

I love the Family Cycle Trail! I had a memorable ride around the whole of it last year, when we weren't planning on going that far! It was lovely though. I've also done the 5k route from Mallard's Pike on my hand bike with my brother - really enjoyed it but it was hard work on some of the uphill bits and I needed a push from my brother!

Sorry - my fingers slipped on the keyboard! There's also the Cheltenham race course for cycling.
