This full colour cycle map covers the popular Purbeck area from Moreton and West Lulworth in the west to Swanage and Studland in the east and from Briantspuddle and Wareham Forest in the north down to the UNESCO World Heritage Jurassic Coast.

Produced at a scale of 1: 46,500, using Ordnance Survey cartography under licence, the map is overlaid with 12 clearly marked colour-coded cycle routes researched and recommended by local cycle hire, sales and repair business, Cyclexperience, as well as members of the Greenlink Project and the Studland & Purbeck Integrated Transport Partnership. Together they take in the very best the area has to offer, from pretty villages like Corfe Castle, dominated by its ruined hilltop fortress, to forest tracks, a ride in the footsteps of Lawrence of Arabia and coastal trails across the great chalk ridge of the Purbeck Hills, with its sweeping sea views.

The rides are suitable for families as well as those looking for a longer, more challenging ride. For each route an overview is supplied which includes the length of the route, an indication of difficulty and a track elevation graph together with a description of the route's highlights. In addition to the marked routes, the entire network of cycle paths and bridlepaths are also shown enabling cyclists to join together sections of routes or devise their own routes should they wish to do so. The map additionally shows tourist attractions, viewpoints, picnic sites, car parks campsites and pubs throughout the area.
