The New Forest Cycling Week was founded in 1975 and for 35 years was based at the Forestry Commission Roundhill campsite near Brockenhurst. In 2010 the New Forest Cycling Week moved to the UK Youth Activity Centre at Avon Tyrrell Manor near Burley. This year we celebrate the rally's 40th anniversary year!

The Rally attracts approximately 200 attendees each year. It is an informal Rally for cycle campers, free from pressure and over-organisation, yet offering activity for all those who wish to join in. It's a Rally for cycling families, small groups and individuals whether new to camping or, indeed, more experienced and age is immaterial! There is plenty to see or explore in this unique area. The many minor roads and tracks make enjoyable and safe riding for families and younger riders and there is normally something taking place every day.

The 2014 Rally will run from Friday 25 July until Saturday 2 August. You're welcome to come for the entire duration of the Rally or whichever days are convenient to you.

The 2014 Rally charges are still TBC. However, as a guide the 2013 charges were £8.50 per person, per night, for adults and £5.50 per person, per night, for children aged 5 to 14. Children under 5 are free and there's no charge for pitches, extra tents, extra vehicles or gazebos etc. Charges will apply for using electric hook up points and most of the optional children's activities available at Avon Tyrrell.
