horsham area

Postby mushyj » Thu May 31, 2007 09:40 am

Any good trails or rotes in Horsham (west sussex) or surrounding areas? olso where do i look to find them?
I have tried south downs link which is great ror the scenery but its more of a dog walkers trail! , I have also done an old route we did as kids which was set of from Ashington - down wiston lane - join the south downs and cross chanctonbury ring- then back down through washington - and back up a24 to ashington. (followed by pint at the lacal!) - good route but not to local
anybody in local area or know routes in local area?
cheers

St Leonards Forest from the Roosthole car park, loads of good stuff (and even better once it drys out as it was more than a bit sloppy at the weekend). Tilgate isn't to bad and you can join the two up for a longer ride. There's the North Downs which I'm sure the Guildford chaps would be more than happy to show you around although that's not exactly local.

There's some North Shore up on Denne Hill too.

It does indeed. If you're really desperate Evans do some local rides, never been on one but it's an option, it's a shame that the local bike shops don't have organised rides.

There's also http://www.sussex-mtb.com but these tend to be more around the Worthing area or http://sussexmuddyarse.wordpress.com that have organised rides.
