There are several interesting tracks beyond the obvious choice of the official designated blue, red and wall-of-death offerings in the Park itself. Moving outside of the park boundaries will lead us onto large chunks of the South Downs Way. In one direction there is direct access to Butser Hill and the East Meon/Privett neck of the woods, whilst in the other, the SDW takes you out towards Harting Downs and Beacon Hill.
The start point is the visitor centre car park, so don’t forget to bring some money for the parking meter.
This ride is not recommended for newcomers unless they are confident on steep ascents and descents. For our regular attendees, the tracks are reasonably good although there are some chalk ascents and descents that will get slippery if they get wet at this time of year.
