New Forest & Dorset Tour Part One

We stayed at the New Forest Centenary campsite near Bransgore, and Sunday we cycled the 3.5 miles to Hinton Admiral station and got the train to Pokesdown.

From Pokesdown we cycled to Fishermans Walk, near Southbourne, this was were I used to live and even had two printing and embroidery shops.

The beach was packed as the weather was glorious, as we started our beach cycle ride with tea and cake.

Cycling was difficult with all the predestisns a long the sea front oblivious to the cyclists that dare to venture out, made more hazardous by no cycle line and pedestrians having right of way.

Our journey took us to Boscombe then Bournemouth pier then Alum Chine, Canford Cliffs then Sandbanks then a nice rest before our return journey.

We reached Bournemouth Pier and decided that due to the amount of people on the seafront we would head into the town centre.

After a walk through the gardens and enjoying a pizza, we made our way along the main roads back to Pokesdown station to catch our train back to Hinton Admiral.

Once back at the station our 3.5 mile cycle ride back to camp started, it appears more uphill than we thought but determination and other cyclists (professional) were overtaking us, we just kept on going.
