Cycling in Portland

Portland offers varied riding whether you are into off road or touring along our roads. It's a great way to see Portland, the coast and the countryside. There are many different routes dotted all over the island with some steep climbs and ascents as well as a mix of flatter routes for those more interested in the scenery than a total body workout!

To get you started this 20 mile cycle route can be downloaded as a PDF. It is a circular route starting in Weymouth and taking in many of the most interesting areas of Portland. Once you have completed this there are many more areas to explore, especailly off road.

The Wessex Cycling Touring Club is a thriving forward-looking organisation devoted to leisure cycle touring. With an active group in Weymouthi, in any week, members will find that they have a choice of eight riding groups each offering a different style. The lovely county of Dorset is our home ground, but they tour widely. Open cycling events are among the best, biggest and most well known in the country.
