Mountain Biking on the North Downs

The North Downs are the best venue for mountain biking in the south east of England, including two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the Surrey Hills and the Kent Downs. The hills provide a stunning backdrop to some of the finest mountain biking trails in the country.

This is the first major guidebook dedicated exclusively to this fabulous area, easily accessed from London. And it's packed with all the information that both novice and experienced MTBers will need to make the most of their days out out on the Downs.

  • 20 routes right across the region, including two AONBs
  • the 59km Downs Link, which joins the North Downs to the South Downs and the coast at Shoreham-by-Sea
  • routes graded by distance, difficulty, time and how much they go off road
  • practical information on gear, preparation, safety and accommodation and bike shops in the area
