Cycling in Weymouth and Portland is one of the best ways to get around and see all the sights.
There is nothing better than being with the family and enjoying the scenery whilst being active!
Cycle along the Rodwell Trail, see Sandsfoot Castle and visit the Chesil Beach Centre
Start at the beginning of the trail on Abbotsbury Road or other entrances along the trail at Gypsy Lane or Buxton Road and cycle out towards Sandsfoot Portland. Mid way along the trail, turn off left and visit King Henry VIII’s Sandsfoot Castle and look out at the view across to Portland in the background.
Return to the trail, follow it towards Chesil Beach and see the boats bobbing in Portland Harbour to your left. Visit the Chesil Beach Centre and discover Portland’s conservation plans for Chesil Beach and the Jurassic Coast. Why not stop for tasty snack or refreshing drink at the café after your cycle?!
Or grab your bike and get cycling around the stunning landscape of Portland! Discover the quarrys and find the three lighthouses proudly standing on the coast.
Follow the Le Petit Tour de Manche route which travels from Portland-Weymouth-Dorchester.
