Spent a day on a mountain bike family trail around stunning Forest of Dean near Parkend. Amazed as only had to pay for car park, no other cost involved. Ten mile family trail through beautiful woods, able to stop any time to view stunning scenery or stop for a picnic. Family trail varies from flat to steep but manageable for... 更多
A perfect venue for the inlaws and teenagers. Parking is cheap at £3.50 for the day and cycle hire from £15 per bike for half a day. I took the inlaws on the varied but flat green route @ 15.5k, whilst the boys explored the blue and red runs. The centre is well run with welcoming staff @ hire and... 更多
We visited Cannon cycle centre in the Easter holidays and hired two children's and two adult bikes from the Peddle a bike away centre. The bikes were functional and quite basic mountain bikes but they were suitable for the family ride. The actual trails are fantastic for all ages with different routes for all capabilities. The family route offers the... 更多
Visited Cannop Cycle Centre during our Easter break and hired bikes from Pedalabikeaway for a family cycling day around the Forest of Dean. Decent, if slightly in need of a bit of oil, bikes for me and the missus, a nice one 20" one for my 7 year old daughter (quite a confident cyclist) and a tag-a-long for my 5... 更多
We visited today with our bikes after seeing good reviews, intending to spend the whole day here. The weather was great and it was very busy but the total spoiler was the number of people -walkers and cyclists - taking their dogs out with them off the leads. There were quite a few "near-misses" from dogs randomly running all over... 更多
Took a few days off to visit the Forest of Dean, mainly to mountain bike. Despite the weather being wet, had a great time. The Freeminer's trail was particularly challenging in the wet because of the roots, but still great fun. Atmosphere in cafe area was friendly and we enjoyed the food and drink in the cafe. Great facility and... 更多

Got our bikes from Pedalabikeaway which I would definitely recommend. Great family cycle trail that also has little sections adjacent to the track for kids to try out the more mountain bikey sort of bits. Even the actual mountain bike trails were quite comfortable and would be easily achievable by beginners.
We brought our own bikes so can't comment on the cycle hire here. We were surprised how busy it was for a midweek day in September after the schools had returned. Although parking is £3.50 a day, we also used the ticket at Symond's Yat later the same day. It's half the price of my local Forestry Commission cycling car... 更多
Probably the best cycling in England.The views are stunning saw at least six deer, the family cycling trail is suitable for all ages and experience if you can give it a go you wont be disappointed.
