Sharing the space

As with all visitors, we ask cyclists to stay aware of their surroundings and treat others with respect.

  • When cycling in places where sharing with pedestrians, horse riders or horse drawn carriages is permitted, please take extra care and be prepared to slow down or stop
  • Let them know you are there; for example, by ringing your bell (it is recommended that a bell is fitted to your bike), or by calling out politely. Remember that pedestrians may be deaf or hard of hearing, blind or partially sighted and it may not be obvious that you are approaching them
  • You should not pass a horse on their left or at speed, particularly from behind. Remember that horses can be startled if passed without warning
  • Only cycle on designated roads
  • Please do not cycle in groups of more than six (6)

Windsor Great Park can get very busy, especially during special events. Whenever you visit, you’ll be sharing our roads with Estate workers, residents and other visitors.
