North Downs Way Riders' Route

The North Downs Way is fully explorable on two wheels, or four legs thanks to our new Riders’ Route itinerary.

The 153-mile national trail through the Kent Downs and Surrey Hills Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) has undergone enhancement works in the past year to make it more accessible for both keen and amateur cyclists and horse riders. It can be tackled in one go for experienced riders, or broken up into sections. The route has been split into sections which you can view below or find further details in our Riders’ Route itinerary.
