Plan a trip

A circular tour of West Dorset, entirely on-road and rather hilly. Gillingham's railway station makes it a good place to start and end. Villages such as Milton Abbas and the towns of Shaftesbury and Blandford Forum couldn't be prettier, and for the most part the lanes are quiet. A classic weekend tour for the experienced cyclist.
