Friends of the Earth have reminded us that you can still register to take part next month in their Big Green Bike Ride 2013: London – New Forest.

The first Big Green Bike Ride raised thousands of pounds for Friends of the Earth in 2012 and they hope it will again this year. All funds will go towards their vital environmental campaigning which of course includes supporting renewable and sustainable energy.

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.
