Cycling     in     the     New     Forest     is permitted       on       most       public highways.   The   usual   rules   of   the road   apply   but   please   follow   the Cycle    Code    to    make    your    ride safer     for     yourself     and     other forest users. The   National   Park   has   many   quiet country   lanes,   perfect   for   cycling,   as   well   as   over   100   miles   of   way-marked cycle tracks across the Crown Lands of the Forest. The   varied   terrain   makes   it   a   cycling   destination   for   all   ages   and   abilities   but   it is   most   suited   to   recreational   riders,   couples   and   family   groups.   The   New Forest   is   the   most   recently   formed   National   Park   in   the   UK   but   the   fragile forest   environment   gives   home   to   many   species   of   flora   and   fauna   which need   protection   from   the   pressure   weighed   down   by   recreational   use.   With over    13    million    visitor    days    spent    in    the    New    Forest    every    year,    the management   of   recreational   use   is   crucial   to   the   future   of   the   New   Forest habitats, and as cyclists, we need to ensure we keep to the designated trails.
