    There's some leisurely family riding around Alice Holt. Not sure if there's anything more serious around there.

    Up by Bracknell you have Swinley Forest which has a lot of stuff (fairly flat, but a self contained trail centre-ish kind of place). One of the key places most people go to starting out in the area.

    There are bits and pieces around the army land around Aldershot/Fleet/Deepcut/Pirbright areas. Google 'Tunnel Hill Trolls' for a group that does this stuff.

    And over to the right of Surrey you have the whole of the Surrey Hills which is about the best I know of in this area for singletrack. Check out the London Calling thread for that as a load of us do Surrey Hills.

    There's a lot of common land in Surrey you can ride (strictly speaking keeping to the bridleways, but there's singletrack dotted around, even some jump areas).

    There is an XC course but it's probably not open to the public outside race event.

    Maybe you could enquire!

    Or you can go south to the Downs, QE Park etc.
