Greensand Annual Cycle Pass - Rushmere

The annual pass offers great savings to regular users or we have the Day Pass option for those who prefer to pay as they ride.

We provide public free access for cyclists from cycling entrance points through to Herons' View Visitor Centre.

In addition the Trust has developed permissive cycle trails within the park, which require and are funded through our Greensand Bike Pass.

Access to these additional routes therefore requires a Greensand Bike Pass which can be purchased below for either an individual or family* group as either an annual option, valid for one year from the date of purchase, or as a Day Pass. The Pass protects both the user and landowner against third-party liability and helps to fund the maintenance and the safety checks of these paths. The rules differ for the various schemes due to matters such as insurance so please check the individual terms and conditions carefully. Please note purchase of a Greensand Bike Pass entitles the holder to ride permissive cycling trails at Rushmere Country Park – it does not guarantee or include access to parking.

A map of Rushmere's permissive bike trails can be downloaded here.
