Mountain Biking in the South Downs

Mountain Biking in the South Downs

Overview

The entire 100 mile length of the South Downs Way is open to cyclists, from Eastbourne to Winchester. Try the section from the hostel door or stop off overnight or just for a drink if you’re completing the entire trail. Friston Forest was formerly a cross-country racing venue and provides mountain bikers of all abilities a place to clock up some muddy miles. You won’t find huge technical challenge on the official 7-mile Red Trail but what it lacks in difficulty, it makes up for in fun. So, hop aboard and have a blast down this fast, flowing woodland route.
