Dorset is a county without motorways. Many of its roads follow the lines of Roman roads and ancient trackways making it ideal country for the keen cyclist. There are remote villages and ancient houses tucked down quiet lanes or hidden in valleys which have remained unchanged over time just waiting to be discovered.
There are several interesting routes which can be taken from Bredy House. You can take the back roads to Beaminster following the Brit valley or the lanes though Bradpole and Powerstock leading up to and over the impressive Iron Age hill fort of Eggardon Hill. Another option is to cycle through the spectacular Marshwood Vale and on to Forde Abbey, a Cistercian Monastery founded in 1138. You might choose to pass Pilsdon Pen ancient hill fort, at 909 ft the highest point in Dorset.
Alternatively you can head east travelling along winding country lanes and using the South Dorset Ridgeway to reach the summit of Black Down and Hardy's Monument, erected in 1844 in memory of Vice Admiral Sir Thomas Hardy.
There is also the option to hire electric bicycles locally and join a guided tour if you wish.
