By Bike and on Horseback

Our absolute priority remains the safety of our visitors as well as the 117,000 people living and working within the National Park.

Before travelling to the South Downs National Park, please read our latest guidelines on staying safe and exercising the “3 Rs” – Restraint, Responsibility and Respect


Whether it’s under your own steam or with a four-legged companion, the South Downs has something for every kind of cyclist and rider to enjoy and explore. 

As well as the famous South Downs Way to explore there are 1,200 km of car-free bridleways across the National Park, miles of leafy country lanes and old railway trails including the Downs Link, Meon Valley Trail and Centurion Way

With so many tracks, trails and leafy lanes to discover and great places to stop for locally produced food and drink there’s never been a better time to discover the South Downs by bike or horseback.
