South Downs Mountain Bike Adventure

From: £45.00

With hundreds of miles of interlinking trails, the South Downs is a beautiful place to explore on a mountain bike. Explore ancient woodlands, swoopy descents, chalky climbs to panoramic vistas and sea views. Great cafe stops and plenty of wildlife from Red Kites to Rabbits!

The South Downs is an area we are lucky enough to call home, and we want to share it with you! Come and join our newest mountain bike guided rides in the South Downs National Park.



We believe that guided rides are an excellent way in which you can truly get the most enjoyment from your time in the saddle. Modern-day life is hectic, so why waste time looking around for new routes, getting lost in a maze of backroads and bridleways when we do all the hard work for you and ensure you get straight to the action?

If you are looking to ride trails outside of the trail centres and rediscover the wild side of mountain biking, then this trip is for you. Our local guides will share with you a mystery route through ancient woodlands, undulating old droveways with panoramic views across open fields and out to the sea.

Guides offer navigational freedom, mechanical support and, if necessary, first aid assistance. We provide guides at a ratio of 1 guide to 8 cyclists and can cater for groups of up to 24. If your team is larger, don’t worry because we love a challenge and will be happy to find ways to work with you.

Would you like to organise this trip for yourself and a group of mates or colleagues on a different day? We can do that just get in touch with your dates.
