Cycling at Wicken Fen

Explore the reserve on two wheels. Enjoy an easy family ride to see our konik ponies or discover the wildlife in the wider reserve.

Our Cycle Hire will be open this February half term, from Saturday 12 February until Sunday 20 February, offering a range of bikes for you and the family to explore along the Lodes Way through the wider nature reserve. Our Cycle Hire building is just opposite the Visitor Centre, close to the Docky Hut café for easy refreshment after your ride. Please note, the Lodes Way is somewhat muddy and wet at this time of year, so do come suitably dressed for your adventure.  

Cycling Routes

The National Cycle Network Route 11 travels through the reserve and offers plenty of options for short taster rides and longer adventures.  Part of this route is known as the Lodes Way, which takes you through the reserve to Anglesey Abbey; 8 miles away in the village of Lode.

Our friendly cycle hire team will be happy to talk to you about routes to suit you, or you can telephone the Visitor Centre in advance of your visit to find out more.  You can bring your own bikes and park in our car park which is on the edge of the NCN route 11, or hire bikes from us. Please check our facilities and access information about cycle hire before visiting.
