If you are looking to cycle the South Downs Way but want the hassle taken out of the experience we can help! We offer a range of self-guided cycling holidays from  2-4 days which include good quality accommodation on a B&B basis, luggage transfers, labels, guide book, annotated map booklet and personalised trip notes.

The South Downs Way stretches for 100 miles from historic Winchester to the elegant coastal resort of Eastbourne and is almost all off road, perfect for cycling on a mountain bike. You’ll enjoy some spectacular scenery but you’ll have to work for it, there are plenty of ups and downs! We strongly recommend that you cycle from west to east (Winchester to Eastbourne) as you’re more likely to have the prevailing winds at your back. No guarantees of course but anything you can do to avoid cycling into a headwind is advisable!

Please note: Our cycling trips are unsupported so you will need to be able to repair your bike en route if necessary. We do not hire out bikes and are not able to transport people or bikes.
