Bedgebury Forest Mountain Bike Trails on the Kent, Sussex border offer a great mountain bike experience. There are 12 miles of singletrack, graded red.
In September 2013 the 5 Ways section opened and in October Magic Carpet has also been opened by the forestry commission meaning that the ride down from the Quarry to Park lane is now complete.
The previous Northshore and Dirt Jumps areas have been removed.
Red (with black options) Trail
- The 12km red trail can be defined as being made up of twisty turns with many short ups and downs giving you a significant yet rewarding workout. It is nested in a rooty environment with small berms to aid with cornering with many small rollers and a good few small drops dotted along the way. It is split into a multitude of sections aptly named e.g. deliverance, cardiac, five ways, magic carpet and so on each with their own flavour.
- It has an optional black section which is at the lower end of the black scale. This section starts with a rock garden roll up demanding balance and speed and then has a number of small kickers and drops.
10km of newly surfaced family cycle track round the 2000 acre forest.
Cycling Clubs and Groups
- There is an active club structure from Boars on Bikes who organise rides and trail building and there is a Go Ride British Cycling gig for the kids.
