Cycling tourism in Dorset has been given a major boost with the help of a national newspaper.

New cycle routes in Weymouth and Portland have featured in a 100 page supplement in The Guardian, called, 'Cycling Breaks in England'.

Weymouth and Portland's cycling trails are also being added to the National Cycle Network. The popular leaflets covering West Dorset will be updated to include the Borough.

Councillor Rachel Rogers, Tourism Briefholder at Weymouth and Portland Council said: "Dorset offers many opportunities for cycling, from signposted NCN routes throughout Dorset and scenic disused railway lines, such as the Rodwell Trail from Weymouth to Portland, to off road forest trails such as Moors Valley, which are great for families.

"For local residents and visitors alike, cycling is a fantastic way to explore our beautiful county, spend quality time with family or friends and get fitter while having a great time."
