Wish we had done a full day
Great Trip Adviser Review...
"Fabulous local bike trails”
Reviewed 7 August 2014
My daughter (age 9) had a super day cycling around Weymouth. The Jurassic Coast activities booking office were very friendly and happy to book over the phone. Roy who handles the cycle hire was very attentive and made sure our bikes were set up correctly, that we had helmets that fit, puncture kit and of course maps. He spent some time showing us routes which was. Very much appreciated. The trails are well marked and maintained and we took a lovely route around country park and Rodwell trail.
We had a lovely day and found locals who were happy to help us when we needed help.
We did a half day trip, I'd recommend a day and do the Rodwell trail (used to be a rail way line I believe). I would recommend stopping off at Sandfoot Castle and Gardens for a snack or lunch. It is parallel and down off to the left of the Rodwell trail heading towards Portland. There is a small sign, so look out for it!
The gardens are well maintained, the castle remains interesting and of course a stunning view. The cafe food was also very yummy with a selection of toasties etc.
