Alton Water Cycling

With stunning views of the reservoir and tracks running through the Suffolk countryside, cycling is one of the most popular ways to explore Alton Water. With tracks open all year round, you can take your time taking in the scenery or put your fitness to the test.

How many miles can I ride?

You have the choice of a four-mile bike ride on surfaced tracks or a more challenging cross-country route of eight miles. Of course, how many times you want to do the trail in a day is entirely up to you...

I don’t have a bike, can I hire one?

Alton Cycle Hire has everything you need for a day on our tracks, with a wide range of bikes and accessories for hire. A popular destination for families, you will also find a great range of family-friendly cycles.
