hey guys, just wondering if anyone knows of or has stayed at any campsites in the dorset or new forest area with a bike lock up? thanks


  • don't know specifically but when touring on the mountain bikes we take the front wheel off and put it in the fornt porch area of the tent then lock the bikes to each other and preferably to a tree or fence. Not having a front wheel pretty much eradicates the risk of opurtunitist theft. Never had any problems but might be an issue with insurance and not being covered.

    If it's a popular trail centre area, the thieves are either the local pikeys or more likely professionals who drive there for the day to harvest the good stuff. They'll get at it if they are determined enough.
