Green fields, high hedges, wiggly lanes, a few horse riders, the sea, the sea, the sea... The list of what you'll observe on this Dorset route is virtually endless!
You can start from Tisbury train station and the tour goes right from the north-eastern tip of the county right down to the iconic beach town of Weymouth (ending at a cute beach cafe, in fact). In the process you'll go through some of the most rural, winding, hilly roads that Dorset has to offer, so make sure you're ready for a big day out. Reaching Abbots Tearooms in Cerne Abbas (known for the Giant, of which you'll get a great view once you've gone through the village) is the perfect mid-ride pit stop with bike parking in the garden and delicious homemade cakes.
Dorset is the only county that doesn't have a motorway, which fortunately means there's very little traffic as cars just prefer to avoid this area altogether! After you've tackled some of these tight, twisty lanes, you'll soon realise that these backroads are a killer.
But it'll all be worth it when you've loaded your bike onto the train to return to the parked car at Tisbury. You can trust Dorset style.
