Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device a bit intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. Although this is generally quite harmless you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests. If you prefer, it is possible to block some or all cookies, or even to delete cookies that have already been set; but you need to be aware that you might lose some functions of that website.

Discovery Rides

The spring season of Discovery Rides saw riders of all ages and abilities take part in a guided night ride to spot the stars and constellations over the South Downs, a family ride along the Meon Valley Trail and even an Easter egg hunt ride!

The summer season of Discovery Rides gets under way this year with three rides around the Winchester area.

We hope to put on more Discovery Rides for the summer/autumn so register your interest at

Could you become a South Downs Cycle Ambassador?

Building on the Discovery Rides we have launched a South Downs Cycle Ambassadors programme. Ambassadors attended a series of workshops to improve their cycling ability, maintenance skills and knowledge of the National Park.

Thank you to our Discovery Ride Leaders

All rides are led by qualified ride leaders from our partner organisations in each area.
