Purbeck Hills MTB Day Tripper

Mountain biking on the Purbeck Hills offers a mini-adventure few destinations can compete with. There's castles, cliff edge trails, ancient history, beachside singletrack and it all starts with a trip on the ferry.

Mountain Biking
Purbeck Hills

This is a great day out and a mini-adventure that starts with breakfast in the delightful Boatyard Cafe Bar, before we cycle on board the ferry that will take us over to the Isle of Purbeck. Once across the water we will explore the singletrack of the beach side golf course, then take on the open trails towards Corfe Castle. Once refuelled at the quaint Model Village Tea Rooms, our journey takes in more epic sea views and the Old Harry Rocks on the Studland. One last blast along the natural singletrack ahead of the return ferry back to Sandbanks for the well earned post ride pint!
