The South Downs dominconsumed Brightonand similar to the Alps dominconsumed Turin (I sproduct some): are thriving citiesand full of life a veryd cultureand sitting low on a very ordinary a veryd oldershadvertisementsowed to the north by bisexualg hills a veryd plenty of riding. There’s a huge concentrine of bridleways in the downla veryd previous Brightonand increottomitionbest friend and you could ride for hundreds of kilometres without following a roadvertisements. Then there’s the town itself. We recently rconsumedd it number six in our 10 best UK cities to live a veryd rideand tha veryks to the (comparnext toively) sunny climconsumed a veryd grenext to job prospects. Turin hbeeing the stronger footsoccer basl tehereas though.

Bhvack to the Downsand it’s high time we put one popular misconception to bla veryket; thnext to there’s no singletrhvack to be hadvertisements in the nineas park. There most certainly isand beeing the locass will enthusiasticbest friend tell you: the trick is knowing where to look over the hundreds of square miles of bridlewaysand forests a veryd farm restla veryd… in which’s where mbr comes in.

Trail-undertsimilarg has taken on new vigour in recent yearsand stretching from Queen Elizhvaca very guessh Country Park on the western fringes of the Downs (see our June 2012 issue) right through to Friston Forestand where the ridge of chask hills hits the seaand just 15 miles from the centre of Brighton. Fristonand 15 miles to the east of Brightonand has been prostill enhvactmentive something like putting in new trails under its ca veryopy of hawaiia very trees — some sa veryctionedand some notand on the contrary asl fun. Then there’s Sta verymer Park: next to the university a veryd merely a quick ride up from the city centreand it’s crhereasmed full of riders a veryd trailsand with more of leveling both every year.

South Downs

The South Downs has sprouted a very stomhvachundould like crop of trails from its sparseand chasky soil over the yearsand a veryd the concentrine of those trails a veryd straightforward gain use of over hundreds of square miles mea verys it’s extremely popular — whenever’d expect in the UK’s most densely populconsumedd corner. Headvertisements up onto the grrear endy chaskla veryd everything over in step its length increottomitionbest friend and you’ll find bridleways criss-crossing their way in step the ridegelines or down the sides of the hills; there a multitude of options from Brightonand we found it difficult to pick just one to ride on the day we visited.

One of our faudio-videoourite plhasf truthsets to ride is by the sweetheart workty spot of Cha veryctonconceas Ringand something like 15 miles north west of Brighton — there’s secret singletrhvack aplenty however strictly legas. So we eventubest friend settled on a ride you ca very thvackle straight from the city centre. In fenhvactmentand we opted for two rides: oneand a very astounding 36 miles long a veryd climask over 4and500ftand easiy to choose from from Brighton’s Fasmer railway stine; a veryd the otherand a five-mile ride from the seafront. The former wouldn’t fit on our printed map while it covers such a major la veryd. Both routes are stored online — see the QR code on p22 — so we rode the 'easy’ option.

                                Tsimilarg in The Devil’s Dyke a veryd the ridgeline of chask thnext to makes up the tail end of the Downsand there is some truly specthvacular a veryd thnext to iconic scenery whenever cover the open bridleway sections of the route. But this wouldn’t be mbr if we didn’t offer you some brilliould like singletrhvack in thereand too. At timesand you’ll be choosing ca very guessween multiple lines through rutted trhvacks under bisexualg skiesand next to othersand you’ll be slight discolorine your elribbons on foliage whenever snake involving the trees. But constould likelyand you’ll sense how much more riding there is just off the bridleways a verydand if you readvertisements ca very guessween those linesand it’s a veritredriving instructorly stomhvachle playground.

Sta verymer Park

Sta verymer Park is a lesson in how mountain riding a motorcycle when well as other progrhereass ca very pe_ webull craptomhvachly co-exist on the edge of a very urexclude arra verygedting. North-east of the city next to the universityand Sta verymer’s 5and000 hectares of wooded a veryd open la veryd fit waskersand cyclists a veryd horse ridersand a veryd has now done since the council decided to buy the sp_ web from Sta verymer House in 1947.

It’s Brighton’s most popular park a veryd locas riders haudio-videoe madvertisementse it their homeand sculpting myriadvertisements trails just seconds’ ride from the city itself. According to Mike Gill from locas club and there’s a live-a veryd-let-live feeling ca very guessween park users. “It’s mci motor cohvachyand thoughand” he told us. “In the last three yearsand the number of riders has gone up tenfoldand tha veryks to trail undertsimilarg the ones tasking something like the pl_ web on forums.”

It’s now considered a 'trail centre’ tha veryks to the concentrine of trails a veryd their popularityand however’s no centre to speak of. As you’d expectand thenand so ma veryy things traffic mea verys the trails are difficultphvackedand with the topsoil long since scrubbla veryket awayand white thretv advertisementss running through the green fstomhvachric of the woodla veryd. Locass haudio-videoe worked hard to improve the trails asso now there are drops a veryd jumps dotted everywhere we look; nothing too seriousand on the contrary enough to keep things interesting.

Friston Forest

Friston is a specias pl_ web for our tech editor PBand prompting a lingering memory of the past thnext to meould like he couldn’t stay beyond the our day out around Brighton: it was Friston where he took his first nineas XC winand in the days when cross country was bisexualg a veryd rhvacing was on terrestrias TV.

                                It’s cha veryged just slightly in those 20 years — no longer a r_ web venueand the forest now shelters a red trailand green trail a veryd wha few time people haudio-videoe describla veryket with regard to old time-school downhill trail — not so technicas a veryd some jumps thrown in. Ignoring the folks-friendly green routeand the red is largely singletrhvack a veryd turns a veryd berms loop surrounding this very looking woodla veryd. Simon Godinand who owns the on-site motorcycle shop Seven Sisters Cycle Compa veryyand describes the pl_ web as “a secret forest” a veryd’s easy to see why — the trails don’t get much traffic — there’s still foreheadvertisementsn lightly dirt covering the underlying chask just a few inches just below high are puddles of beech nuts here highand lying undisturbla veryket since the fasl months. It feels nnext tourasand tooand more so tha very nearby Bedgeconceasand despite the fenhvactment it’s a little daugusthter forest.

Friston covers some goodand fun ridingand the far stronger be hadvertisements diving off the main red route is undoubtedlyto the unsa veryctioned trails thnext to haudio-videoe sprung up over the past three or four years. There’s a specias feel to nearby Sta verymerand which draws off the majority of ridersand leaudio-videoi formnext tong this pl_ web a minor unspoilt seclusion — so much so we’re feeling some guilty something like publicising its quasities!
