A figure of 8 loop on gravel tracks through beautiful sections of the New Forest both wooded and heathland. Plenty of wildlife to see too.

We rode this today and it was a bit longer than 2 hours, actual time about 4 hours plus a 20 minute sandwich stop, but on hybrid bikes as ridden by a couple of average fitness 60 year olds. The gravel surfaces dropped our average speeds down to about 8 to 9 mph on the flat and a bit less on the steeper parts and on parts where the surface was a bit loose but gradients not too steep.
No doubt fitter and more experienced riders on mountain bikes could do it in the 2 hours quoted, but for a family something nearer 3 hours 30 to 4 hours net of stops would be more realistic, especially if you want to see the wildife

I forgot to say that it was lovely route and thanks for publishing it. We really enjoyed it and look forward to trying out some more of these. Hopefully we can factor in our performance capability a little more accurately in terms of predicting the time it will take us relatie to the time quoted on our next outing.
Perhaps some food for thought for those contributing, e.g time for quoted is based on XXX type of bike with a rider of XXX performance, so that we of a particular capability can adjust times accordingly

Nice route. We have just done it in April 2017.
Some areas really muddy, but not hard to pass through. Keep in mind that if you download this gpx do Garmin there are 2 or 3 areas where it tells you to go off to the forest not following the new forest signs. Do not do it. I made a mistake following the course exactly how it was and go to some areas in the forest which there was no tracks and I had to go back. This happens with gpx when who is creating looses gps signal... normal to happen.

My wife and I completed in 2:20, but we have not stopped for any snack or food. The route is really nice, but keep in mind you need to go off this course if you want to stop half way for a meal.
