Where We Ride

Here you will find a sample of some of the places we ride. It is not a complete list, and we are always looking for new areas to explore!


For bespoke MTB Trails which will test you where others won't, take a trip to Wales - we all love it there! Visit for more details.


Well worth the drive to this picturesque castle town beneath the Sussex Downs. The routes are stunning - long climbs, long descents, and loads of technical 'tree root' sections to test your bike handling.

Avon Tyrrell Mountain Bike Trail

This is a small but very interesting forest bike trail to test your bike handling skills. Dorset Rough Riders may buy individual day permits (very small fee) to use the course at the current discounted residential rate. Ring 01425 672347 for more information, or see their website.

Canford Heath

When the rest of the world is in the Dolphin Centre on a wet and windy Saturday, Canford Heath is where you need to be - still one of the best cracks and it's right on your doorstep!

Forest of Dean

Over in Wales, this is more love an overnight weekend or weekday ride with some fantastic tracks.

Isle of Wight

A tough (31 miles), hilly ride with dramatic scenery but a nice pub at the end.

Redhill Rides

You wouldn't believe the variety of trails within easy reach of Bournemouth. Not too hilly, loads of single track & open heath. Typical routes include Canford Heath, Hurn Forest, Horton Tower, Cannon Hill, and Badbury Rings.

Surrey Hills

Taking in some spectacular riding - if you love hills and climbing, this is the place for you.

Sunday 'Special' Rides

Farther afield, based around rides featured in MBR, etc. Perfect if you've ever read the descriptions in the mags and thought, "I'd like to do that but who do I go with?", or "I can't be bothered with all that map reading." Destinations include: Winchester Downs, Dartmoor, Salisbury Plain, Bristol area, Dorchester, and many more.

The Purbecks

Sometimes known as "God's Playground", this is the place to go for big hills and stunning scenery. Great cake shops, too!

Wareham Forest

Some great singletrack, and not too hilly.
