|Really interesting route - range of scenery quite intriging from the tidal flats around Holes Bay, and into the Forest and Heathland, then a little bit of coastal at the end. (If you go anticlockwise !)|
Along the Purple Purbeck there are quite a few gates to go through, an alternative could be picking up the National cycle route - Number 2 which may be a bit more fluid, that said its quite fun through the fields !
