Brand new for 2019!
Pure flow and fun from the woodland singletrack and bombholes of this South Downs classic.

SKU: N/A Category:
There is no cross-country loop before-hand, this is all about showing you every slither of singletrack, as long as you have the energy in your legs to keep going up, to take on yet another one of the flowing trails that weaves it way through the trees. Friston Forest has long been a local favourite for the past 20 years or so.

Why? It’s simple, the woodland here just off the South Downs Way is festooned with classic flowing singletrack that have you grinning from ear to ear. There are huge bomb-holes, tight old-school trails and more flow then you can handle. This really is another reason why the South Downs should not be overlooked.
