Rogate is a fantastic downhill spot, the trails are really good, well maintained and there's good variety, with tight, twisty technical dh as well as nice, big easy tables, hips, gaps and lots of drops, the dual slalom track, DD is great too, really fun, I've been to rogate 6 times.

User Review

Good Points
The trails are fun, for a wide range of abilities, they're well maintained, they have regular dig days.
The trails are really compact, all close together on one side of the hill, so you don't have to ride for ages between the trails.
The trails are well marked out with tape, and loads of signs for walk up paths etc.
Bad Points
You have to pay £4 online or £6 on the day.
Some small sandy sections can get a bit too loose after long dry periods, eg before first table on main line.

Went to Rogate for the first time recently and now I can't stop going every weekend! The trails are so fun for all abilities, the push up is really short for the length of the runs, conditions are perfect even after non stop rain, trails are well maintained and marked, all making it one of the best DH spots in south England.

Have used this venue a few times now it's great for all abilities. Every time I've been I have enjoyed myself all the riders are friendly never heard anyone say any bad about the venue

User Review

Good Points
Excellent venue to ride runs are well designed. Short runs but short push back up too. With the new fencing being put up will stop riders cutting in or across runs.
Bad Points
Again the runs are short and no where to buy a drink or food if you forget anything.

Good but worth the trip to aston hill or somewhere with an uplift, great for a day mucking around on the bikes but wouldnt travel more than 1 hour to get there, but luckily im only 45 mins away but worth checking out if youre just after a chilled ride in a welcoming environment or great for a ride in the wet!

User Review

Good Points
short/easy walk up, a fair few trails, quite regular dig days to keep it running well and runs really well in the wet, a lot of potential building wise, trails are still good fun, made good use of land up there too
Bad Points
All trails are fairly similar, top half loamy, second half sandy, more wooded up top and a lot more open in the bottom however still wooded, in the dry its just too sandy and hard to ride, not much parking, no toilets or food available.

fast becoming one of my favourite places to ride for a couple of reasons. 1. It is 20 mins from where I live. 2. It is incredibly good fun.
It is regularly very busy which creates a great vibe. due to the amount of tracks that can be ridden by all abilities, the tracks are never crowded.
It's sand based soil makes it just as good in the wet and the push up is short and steep.
Ideal for sessioning, you could spend all day here and just dial in each run for maximum thrill.
To get the most out of it, don't hammer down it over all the obstacles. The brevity of the tracks mean that you really need to accentuate every feature. Manual, whip and scrub...

Great to ride wet or dry. Progressive trails with variety. Professional photographer on site and short pushup.
Bad Points
Your ability to pass up on an opportunity to ride at the site again is greatly reduced after a first visit.

Had a great couple of hours for the first time at Rogate on the way back from Portsmouth to London. It was mid week and quite early in the day so it was quiet. The few locals around were really helpful and gave great tips. What really surprised me is the day and night before the heavens had opened in biblical style yet it felt really firm and grippy.

I started on the one dot and moved onto the two dots of trails mainly on the lower half (did a couple of runs on upper half which is woodier and also fun). Most of the time was on the Main Line with a bit on the DD trails. The Main line is an awesome track as it has drops, jumps, tables and berms and the bigger drops are optional making the line quite progressive. Really fun to session.

Fun day and as I pass this place at least four or five times a year I will definitely be back soon.
