Dorset Foodie Routes
Discover the great tastes of Dorset!
A match made in heaven is the combination of good food and exercise and so thanks to support from the Food is GREAT campaign we have come up with eight new food routes that encourage you to use Dorset Pedal Power to explore the culinary delights our unique county has to offer.
“Get on your bike” or for an even more leisurely approach, pull on a pair of walking boots and enjoy the thrill of discovering the new Dorset food routes that often lie off the beaten track but are sure to offer culinary delights to make your toes tingle.
Look out for the Dorset Pedal symbol in the windows of cafes and shops along the routes and enjoy some tasty treats and with some offering discounts designed especially for Dorset Pedal people!
