By Bike and on Horseback

By Bike and on Horseback

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

There are also a great number of cycling routes in the Central and Eastern Downs, taking in woodlands, vineyards, rivers, steep scarp slopes and also our amazing Sussex Heritage Coast.

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. 


"The Downs...too much for one pair of eyes, enough to float a whole population in happiness."
