Watch out there are cyclists about!

It is going to be a busy summer with many cycle events coming through Beaulieu .The 2 very big ones will   be UK Cycling’s “ Wiggle”. These two events will come through the village in April and October they are starting from the west, just outside the Forest at Matchams Leisure Centre and coming over the Forest to use the area south of Beaulieu. These events run over two days and have 3000 riders per day. There is also a smaller event run by UK Cycling which departs from Gang Warily and is called Wight Sportive with 650 riders it will pass through Beaulieu both going and coming back on the 5 and 6 July. Several of the Forest Parishes are not happy about this and are trying to raise objections.
