Going to be staying in Guilford this week (yeah!), is there anywhere nearby I can go for a couple of hours evening ride?

    You're within easy reach of the Surrey Hills, Swinley and Tunnel Hill. That gives you a couple of hundred miles of trails, many within riding distance.
  • You're a bit of a way from Swinley but the Surrey Hills are close by.
    This site has a lot of lowdown on where to go: ... tb-trails/

    Definitely check out Barry Knows Best (or Barry Knows Better as it's now known!)

    You're pretty near the Surrey Hills, Leith hill, Pitch hill and Holmbury hill all of which offer good rides. A few miles away from the Surrey hills is also Box Hill also offering a bit of single track. Swinley forrest is also another place full of single track for you to enjoy!

    Easiest thing is catch a train to Gomshall (for Pitch and Holmbury Hill and Winterfold) or Westcott (for Leith). But nothing is marked and it's a huge area, so best to find some maps or arrange to ride with someone who knows the area.
    Or a train to Martins Heron for Swinley, smaller but still not marked.
    Or if you have a car ignore this.
