    This route starts from Bridport and if you want to sell it to your riding buddies then you can call it a loop of SW Dorset’s secret lanes. Tucked away from the Jurassic Coast, there is a veritable hidden treasure trove of lanes, villages and sights that only true explorers will find on their bikes.

    At just a touch over 55 miles (90 kilometers) this route goes right up to the north of the county. It has two café options: either the Trading Post in Bearminster or the Old School Gallery Cafe in Yetminster. You'll hit Yetminster after a good chunk of the ride, so it's a well-timed stop. From Yetminster to the Blackcomb climb you'll pedal along dreamy, narrow roads that really sum up the area. Then there’s a blast down to Catistock, home of the Dorset knob – a bit of a local delicacy – before a string of short climbs bring you back to Bridport.
