The South Downs are a mountain biker's paradise. The routes in this guidebook take cyclists over roller coaster ridges with superb views of the English Channel; weave around dedicated woodland singletrack; give the buzz of fantastic downhills and offer varying degrees of challenge across a beautiful and diverse landscape.
With each route graded according to length and difficulty, it is easy to find specific challenges for varying abilities.
Thousands of kilometres of well-maintained byways and bridleways are accessible to off-road cyclists, and they can easily be mixed and matched to create seemingly endless route combinations. Many tracks cross well-drained chalk downland, providing superlative off-road conditions for much of the year.
Extensive information is provided on facilities in the area including bike shops and mechanics, cafés, pubs and shops - plus useful information on accommodation and transport.
