Hampshire East Off Road Cycle Trails
Originally an ancient market town built as a Norman 'new town' at the end of the 11th Century, Petersfield is now a vibrant place for shopping and eating out. Set in the glorious countryside of the South Downs National Park, it provides the perfect focal point for exploring on two wheels.
There are 9 off road routes to cycle around Petersfield and the South Downs:
Bordon - This is a demanding 16 mile trail that takes you from Alice Holt Forest along bridleways and roads, through Bordon to Oakhanger, passing Shortheath Common and on towards Binsted, before returning back to Alice Holt Forest.
Cheesefoot Head - This 19 mile trail is characterised by the chalkland scenery of Winchester. This route uses the South Downs Way for much of its outward leg before an unforgettable return across Stephen’s Castle and Fawley Downs.
East Meon - A challenging 10 miles following the downs of Hampshire. Stunning views from Butser Hill.
Hayling Billy - This easy 5 mile trail uses the Hayling Billy Coastal Path which runs along the west coast of Hayling Island.
Horndean - A moderate 14 mile ‘town and country’ trail which joins Denmead, Cowplain, Horndean, Catherington and Clanfield with the surrounding countryside.
Meon Valley Trail - Running between Wickham and West Meon, this disused railway track provides 10 miles of safe and flat surface for all the family.
Petersfield - One of the hardest trails! It explores 15 miles of the countryside to the north of Petersfield, including Stoner Hill, Little Switzerland and Hawkley village. The climbs are very challenging, but reveal some spectacular scenery.
Queen Elizabeth - A pleasant 10 mile family ride over dramatic downlands and through the rich and beautiful scenery of this part of the South Downs. The ride is centred within the country park. The short cut trail is ideal for families with small children.
Staunton Country Park - This easy 2.6 mile trail is predominantly off road through woodland and open country.
