Cycling is one of the many ways to explore the Ashridge estate.

Cycling at Ashridge

There are over 30 miles of public bridleways to cycle on at Ashridge. You can either get an Ordnance Survey map that will show all of these routes, marked with a long green dash or you can purchase an Ashridge cycling map from the Visitor Centre for £3.99.

Family Cycle Route

If you're looking for a shorter ride, we have a 4 mile route the suitable for families. Taking you through woodland and commons, you'll see some of Ashridge's best landscapes as you peddle by. The route is waymarked with red waymarkers and starts near the cafe as you head down the hill.

Stick to the path

Ashridge is visited by a wide variery of people so to ensure everyone has an enjoyable visit, please use only the designated bridle paths and marked cycle trails. Cycling off these paths can spoil other visitors’ enjoyment of the estate. It also causes erosion and ground compaction. Compacted ground prevents rare and delicate plants from growing in the woods at Ashridge. Please ride carefully and always give way to walkers and horse riders.
