Visitors can enjoy the 13 mile (4-5 hour) scenic 'Round Water Route' which meanders through woodlands and meadows.
The route is carefully controlled to ensure that walkers, riders and cyclists don't leave the path and disturb wildlife habitats. Hedges that line the route have been cut and laid in the old-fashioned way to provide a dense barrier. This helps to protect both the walks and the wildlife so that everyone benefits.
The 13 mile Round Water Ride is open to cyclists during the summer. Bewl Bike Hire operates from the Visitor Centre during the summer months with cycles available for all ages. For information call 01323 870 310 or 0860 386 144. There is an on line map here and descriptions of the route East about and West about
