This is a very long 78km mountain bike route from Dorking to Brighton. It's one way (or more not a loop) so plan to get the train back.
The Chairman of Surrey County Council David Munro officially opened the Summer Lightning Mountain Bike Trailon Thursday 23rd October 2014. The new trail is the first phase of a planned network of trails linking the Surrey Hills. Summer Lightning has proved popular with riders and has demonstrated how mountain biking can be built and managed by multiple landowners along a section of trail.
The full circular trail from Leith Hill Tower is 8.5km long and graded as a Red trail. Just under 3km of new trails were constructed by B1KE through the autumn and winter to add to the exiting Summer Lightning Trail to create the complete way- marked loop.

A good place to park is in the Holmbury YHA car park (Radnor Lane, Dorking, Surrey RH5 6NW). Bear in mind this is the end of the route not the beginning. You need to go a little east to find the start.
Also the GPS has a bit of footpath which you need to walk down to the road 5 mins into the ride. Apart from that it is fairly straight forward to follow.
Kicking off in Walking Bottom car park and heading up Pitch Hill onto Winterfold this is a ride that takes in many of the best on offer. It's about 13 - 15 miles and graded hard. There are a few big drops to watch out for although always a chicken run option to go round. Some of the sections are Proper Bo, Bo Selecta, Double Drop, Secret Santa, Northern Monkey, Supernova, Pitch Downhill and more. One of my faves.
Includes all the best of Holmbury Hill but also adds on some nice technical trails on Pitch Hill in one loop. It starts and ends in the Quarry car park and will take about 1.5 hours or less at moderate pace.

The route starts by taking the bridleway leading down out of the bottom of the car park, when veering right and heading diagonally up, before doubling back on yourself to the right (hint: have a look for tracks on your left and right if you like big thrills!). After climbing a bit more, double back left on yourself again into a mini quarry type area. Take the steep rocky climb around the far side (you might well have to push some of it) and, once at the top, head right and keep going on any of the numerous trails until you reach the lookout point.
