South East Mountain Biking - North & South Downs is a compact guide to some of the best mountain bike riding in South East England.
The North and South Downs are criss-crossed with byways and bridleways. These allow you to escape the towns and cities and get out onto fine woodland tracks and into big open chalk country with panoramic views over the Weald and the English Channel.
This guide contains 24 routes from 16 to 35km long, many of which can be linked to make much longer rides. Each is described with easy-to-follow directions and details of distance, grade of difficulty, refreshment stops and is accompanied by specifically designed mapping.
A Bonus Section includes Top Tens for climbs, descents and mountain bike playgrounds, with further information about places to eat, drink and stay.
