North Downs Mountain Biking



Riding In the North Downs, Surrey Hills Peaslake and Dorking

Maybe the best riding the South East? The North Downs / Surrey Hills are proper beefy hills with an established scene. Stuff is always being built and there aren't many who know all the trails there. Rides start from Westcott or from Peaslake with good trails both up and down, across 6 areas. Coldharbour, Ranmore, Leith, Holmbury, Pitch and Winterfold.

The local soil is mainly sand so it drains well. You can do everyhting from hardcore XC to hardcore DH
