About the centre 

Alice Holt Cycling for All is a Cycling UK affiliated centre. It is located a few miles south of Farnham and approximately 1 mile south of Birdworld. The forest is part of the larger South Downs National Park and is a great place for individuals and families to have lots of fun and enjoy a wide selection of recreational activities. 

The forest is managed by the Forestry Commission throughout England, also known as the Public Forest Estate. They prioritise services for the public, as well as the wildlife and  woodland areas. 

CTC enjoy a strategic partnership with the Forestry Commission. Their joint aims include increasing health and well-being, improving awareness of the advantages of engaging in physical activity in the natural environment and increasing cycle skills for all abilities. 

Although bike hire at Alice Holt is available for other cycling groups, the Cycling for All group remains restricted to existing volunteers and committed groups rather than general usage.
