|This is a very easy to navigate, road route, mainly on B roads.
The route goes from the Dorset Soldier pub, Corfe Mullen up the Wareham Road, Lockyers Road, Wimbourne Road and the B3078 to Wimbourne Minster. From there I cycled the loop in a clockwise direction. Go past the Pudding and Pye pub into the main square, then follow the one way system around until you reach traffic lights. Keep left and follow the signs to Cranborne, B3078. This road has The Horton Inn pub along it and takes you up through Knowlton. You then take the B3081 through Verwood and the B3072 to Ferndown. You then head back towards Wimbourne Minster on the Wimbourne Road West and the B3073. Finally you retrace the initial part of the route back to Corfe Mullen on the B3078, etc.
