The best start point is the car park just 1/4 mile along the road from the pub in the direction of the Portuguese Fireplace. It has worked alright for us each time we have ridden from here because parking is at a premium at the pub. We simply leave the cars where they are and walk along the road. Starting from here we have a choice of the Reptilliary, Rhinefield, Bolderwood, Burley, Minstead and so on; all good stuff and just right for working up an appetite.
Please note that if you have previously taken advantage of parking roadside on the verge, you are now denied that opportunity because a series of protection stakes have been set along the road edge to prevent people clogging up the road and causing a hazard. The choice is now either the pub car park or the official forest gravel car parks.
