Cycle the Downs – FREE guided bike rides

The South Downs National Park is a wonderful resource we all get to share and enjoy.

Being outside can give us so many incredible health benefits. From physical exercise to improved mental health and alleviating stress, reconnecting with our outside spaces is good for our wellbeing.

We’re teaming up with Cycle Seahaven for a series of FREE guided bike rides for the summer. 

Cycle The Downs begins in April 2019. We have bike rides tailored for cyclists of all levels, from those who have no cycling experience and want to improve their confidence, right up to seasoned cyclists who want to discover new routes in the National Park.

In all, we have 20 weekend bike rides, all starting from Peacehaven or Seaford and led by one of the experienced cyclists from Cycle Seahaven.

There are three rides available:

  • Introduction Rides last between 30 and 60 minutes and are ideal for those who have little to no cycling experience and want to improve their skills and confidence.
  • Health Rides last up to two hours, are at a relaxed, steady pace and are designed to build confidence and local knowledge.
  • Rural Rides last up to three hours and are ideal for those who want to improve their physical fitness and discovered new trails in the National Park.
