Cyclists welcome here!

Escape to the hills or relax on the flat on 1,200 kilometres of public bridleways across the National Park. From the challenge of the 160km South Downs Way – the only UK National Trail fully accessible to riders – to hitting the mountain bike trails at Queen Elizabeth Country Park, or a gentle road ride between pubs on one of our food trails, the South Downs is the perfect place to explore by bike.

Most cyclists in the National Park have great manners and always show consideration for other people. Please don’t let them down by getting our cyclists a bad name. Use your common sense; follow safety guidelines and the countryside code.
