As long as you don't mind hills, West Dorset is a brilliant place to ride a bike.  Simon is a keen cyclist and knows many good rides from the farm. He regularly cycles with a group of friends and in the last few years they have ridden John O'Groats to Lands End, Bridport to Barcelona and Westminster to West Bay.


His family also cycle, some of them in a more recreational way (10 miles is enough!) so we can recommend everything from toddlers to serious cyclists. 


One of our favourites is Chard to Illminster, a mainly traffic-free route with a pub at Illminster (see 'Family Friendly' box)
