Cycling in Dorset

On the Rivet takes you through some of Dorset’s most iconic landscapes, from the ascent of Abbotsbury Hill to the sweep of the Jurassic Coast as it curves around Lyme Bay. With challenging climbs and spectacular scenery, these routes rival some of the most popular alpine experiences. Rides are co-ordinated and led by Jim, along with our team of guides and support staff, offering inspiration, motivation and expert advice. There’s always time for fun, relaxation and recovery too, with gourmet packed lunches (with cycling nutrition in mind) and plenty of opportunities to enjoy the space, fresh air and unforgettable Dorset coastline.

What level of road cyclist does On the Rivet cater for?


All On the Rivet retreats are designed for experienced road cyclists. We focus our rides on the blue and red categories highlighted below. However we throw in a bit of green to ease you in and should you choose, a bit of black. We provide guidance and support at the appropriate level at all times and will never force a rider out of his or her comfort zone. If you consider yourself able to handle a degree of red then On the Rivet is designed for you.

A word from Jim

Cycling gives me such a deep sense of freedom. For me, it’s about the adventure and exhilaration of getting out there and pushing myself physically.

My idea of heaven would be to return home from a great ride, enjoy a massage, a swim, maybe a sauna, tuck into some wholesome food and share good times with friends. Follow that with a great night’s sleep and the chance to do it all again the next day - well that would be perfect. It’s why I created On the Rivet.

Dorset is such a beautiful place; not only is the landscape spectacular but it’s rich in culture and home to so many talented and interesting people (some of whom we meet during the course of our retreats). I hope you’ll join my team and I here at On the Rivet and allow us to share with you this wonderful place.
