Friends of the Earth have just announced that registrations are now open for their Big Green Bike Ride 2013: London – New Forest.

Whether you have an electric bike or not – any excuse to keep your non-electric cars in the garage has to be a good thing!

You can cycle from the bustle of South-West London to the beauty and tranquility of the New Forest National Park, on the Dorset/Hampshire border.

Saturday 27 – Sunday 28 April 2013

Day 1: London to the New Forest, 85 miles
Cycle the pretty lanes of Surrey and Hampshire, as we wind our way to the New Forest.
Day 2: Explore the New Forest, 40 miles
Explore the heather-covered heath, gentle farmland, ancient woodland and mudflats of this charming corner of the British countryside.
Unwind and relax after a day in the saddle
Set in 1,000 acres of ancient woodland the overnight New Forest location is spectacular.
With tents provided – or the option of upgrading to a luxury shepherds hut – you’ll be able to enjoy the ancient woodland setting and the rustic beauty of the carpenter’s barn.

Keep an eye out for grazing deer and ponies as you enjoy a drink from the woodland bar.

With one-day and weekend options, there’s something for everyone.
