If you’re looking for a short adventure on your bike & only have a spare couple of hours, then head over to the Sika Trail
over in Wareham, Dorset for some fun times.
The Sika Trail is an easy (ish) undulating 7 mile / 11km circular ride
through the sandy pinewoods & heathland around Wareham Forest.
The southern point links to the Northport Greenway a safe
off road route from Wareham down to the forest. You simply have to follow the
blue arrows around the gravel and sandy tracks. Overall it’s pretty flat with a
couple of inclines & suitable for all ages. There’s also lots of little
tracks you can go off piste if you’re feeling brave!
It’s a really lovely serene spot in Dorset & so nice not having to worry about the traffic. The only people you’ll come across are dog walkers
& the odd horse rider. Ideal if you need an hour away from the hustle &
bustle of life.
