Mountain Bike Skills Courses

Blackheath & The North Downs Cross Country

Riding through the leaves in Autumn

Ride description

From the Heart of the Surrey Hills we will take in some of the lesser known beauty spots. These are the best kept secrets of the area, so far known only to the locals and those willing to explore a bit further from Holmbury Hill.

The Route

As with all our rides there are many options for the exact route, we can add and remove sections and loops depending on the group and the conditions. We will sample the trails in Winterfold Woods, Farley Heath and Blackheath before lunch and explore sections of the North Downs way in the afternoon.

We will aim to take in lunch at either the Chilworth Arms or the White Horse in Shere.
