More than 200 people attended the 2012 New Forest Cycling Rally.
The event, for cyclists of all ages was at Avon Tyrell, the UK Youth Activity Centre. It is an ideal location in the New Forest, with superb facilities, easy access to delightful forest tracks, country parks and the seaside.
Newcomers and regulars, families and those travelling from overseas, as well as groups such as the Chippenham Wheelers and the East Sussex CTC all gathered to take part in the Rally at the end of July.
Despite one of the wettest summers on record, remarkably the weather changed just in time to make the week of The New Forest Rally a very bright and sunny one.
From meetings with cheese and wine, a variety of rides on offer each day, trips out to local markets, the velodrome and the Isle of Wight, through to the final barbecue on the last night - it was non-stop, sunny fun!
