Hundreds of cyclists have taken part in a mass ride in the New Forest.

The ride started and finished at Pylewell Park at East End, near Lymington, today and was hosted by Wiggle New Forest Sportive.

Cyclists had the choice of three routes in the non-competitive event - the longest being 102 miles.

The other two routes were 82 and 38 miles.

Organisers said: "The New Forest is a stunning location and we want to keep it this way, food and drink will be served with the environment in mind; that means no one-time plastics or disposable cups.

"We would also like to encourage carbon neutral travel so ride to the event or use public transport if you can - Lymington Pier train station is 1.5 miles from the venue. Let’s protect the world we cycle in!"
