North Downs Way Riders Route


The route takes you through the Surrey and Kent counties, and provides a wide variety of riding that would suit hard tail mountain bikes and gravel bikes. The Surrey half, with its steep climbs and descents, holloways and narrow wooded tracks is probably best suited for a mountain bike, while the less tumultuous landscape, quiet lanes and gravel tracks of Kent have great potential for a blast on your gravel bike. 

The 150 miles can be ridden in one go as a bikepacking adventure, or alternatively Cycling UK has broken the journey down in to three roughly 50 mile stages. Each section has a railway station at both the beginning and end that is serviced with direct trains to London.

Cycling UK's suggested route itinerary over three days going west to east is as following, and each stage can be downloaded below:
