If you’re a mountain biker, you’ll be in your element here. The area boasts some of the longest, most stunning Mountain Biking routes in the South East. There are superb off-road tracks among rolling chalk hills, as well as miles of trails and bridleways criss-crossing the surrounding countryside.
There aren’t that many prepared trails, but that’s part of what makes this place so special. You have the freedom to mix and match what’s on offer to create your own challenging routes. So be adventurous and explore. In a two hour cross country ride you can experience amazing views on chalk downland, exhilarating climbs and descents along the South Downs Way, plus intriguing single tracks in woodland, and bridleways through pasture and heathland.
If you prefer the road, you might be up to the challenge of two of the toughest hill climbs in the country. Or, if you’d rather something a little more sedate, meander through classic English villages with the backdrop of the Downs never far away. If you're coming for a family visit, don't miss out on one of our car free routes such as the Downs Link, or a ride along the promenade with plenty of places to stop for an ice cream!
