Bike Hire

Explore the Dorset coast by land

  • We’re water babies at heart, but have a very soft spot for dry land. The Dorset coastline has many treasures that are best discovered on two-wheels. So grab your camera, saddle up and get pedalling.

    We’ve got some favourite routes (below), but why not grab a map and find your own track. East along the beach promenade will get you to Bournemouth, or head west over the Shell Bay chain ferry to the adventures of the Purbecks. With rolling hills, mysterious hidden pubs and views that will knock your helmet off!

Our favourite trails

The Promenade

Cruise to Bournemouth

Flat with no traffic, it beats the road. Simply follow the promenade until you reach the pier. With sea on one side and local cafes and restaurants on the other. Perfect for families with young children, there are plenty of places to stop on the beach to get lunch (and ice creams!) Please note: Promenade closed July and August.

Quay to the City

Head to Poole Quay

Make your way along the harbour trail into Poole, spending time to watch the buzzing boats and fishermen on the Quay. Grab some fish & chips to refuel for the return leg. This route takes you around Poole Harbour through the centre and Harbour side parks, the otherwise scenic route includes a hill and short stretch of road ride using cycle lanes.

Meet Harry in the Pub

Bankes Arms Pub and Old Harry Rocks

For the more adventurous cyclist. Head west to the chain ferry and hop straight on. After touching down on Shell Bay, head straight along the road for a few miles until you reach the Bankes Arms Pub. Grab a bite to eat in their garden – bliss. With fantastic views of Poole Bay and Old Harry Rocks it is perfect to relax and enjoy the surroundings.
