Nestling in the heart of the South Downs National Park, The Wiston Estate covers 6,000 acres of rolling downland and forest. This ancient landscape supports wildlife, farming, winemaking and, of course, off-road cycling adventures.

The estate’s own Chalk restaurant offers a sophisticated venue where you can enjoy seasonal produce and local wines, making it a perfect start and finish point for a private guided off-road ride that explores the best of the South Downs.

This unique experience includes the following:

  • A three hour tailored mountain bike ride of the Wiston Estate with one of our professional local guides
  • An exquisite two-course lunch at Chalk
  • Electric or non-electric bike hire as an additional option

Need to hire bikes? Just add them to your booking using the ‘Extras’ option. They will be delivered and collected for you on the day.

Meet point: Chalk restaurant, Wiston Estate vineyard, RH20 4BB

This area of the National Park, is home to many of the Marmalade team. The dense network of bridleways that spread out from the river Adur at Shoreham and high above Worthing and Steyning make this area a superb location for cross-country (XC) mountain biking and gravel riding.

We climb up onto the South Downs for a ride that includes the prehistoric hill forts of Cissbury Ring, Chanctonbury Ring and Lancing Ring. This loop that we take you on that includes circumnavigation of these ancient settlements, is perfect for any level of off-road cyclist looking to explore and take in this stunning area with its sea views.

Core skills and bike hire

This ride makes for a perfect introduction to the fun of off-road cycling. An expert Marmalade guide is on hand to help and support you, as you get to grips with the trails and making the most of your bike. E-bikes or manual mountain bikes are all welcome, whether you bring your own or hire from our friends at Riverside South Downs.


This Ride and Dine experience is based from the Wiston Estate’s marvellous Chalk restaurant, and this is where you’ll meet your local Marmalade guide and bikes if you’ve hired before heading out on the car-free bridleways to explore the estate.
