The beautiful village of Beaulieu is also on this route. Short route riders will take on the climb to Hatchet pond then along to Brockenhurst to rejoin the rest of the pack. Epic and Standard riders head north west to Lyndhurst, passing the quaint forest railway station at Beaulieu road. After a quick glance at the bustling town well push on up to Ashurst before tracking along the eastern edge of the forest.

From here we will head deeper in to the heart of the old royal hunting ground, eventually reaching the small hamlet of Fritham. At this point the Standard riders will carry on south towards Bolderwood, while Epic riders continue their journey north for a loop that winds its way in and out of the most northerly border of the forest. Heading south, the riders regroup just before passing under the A31, striking a definite course south towards the focal point of the ride - a spectacular stint through Ornamental Drive. It is here you will see the best the forest has to offer.
