Some of the best mountain biking in the south-east of England is to be found in the Surrey Hills.
This entire area South of Gomshall is an absolute rabbit warren of trails on which we can spend the day developing your confidence, improving your skills and generally having a blast.
This is a Wilderness Weekends grade 1 ride. This means it's not got any significant technicality (i.e. balancey or tricky stuff), all features can be rolled over and do not require you to jump. In simple terms, it's a day's ride that will require a decent level of fitness and be reasonably comfortable on a bike but no experience of bike trails are necessary.
Mud can be an issue on certain trails but if you have a reasonable set of tyres (wider than 2" with knobbles) you should find it great fun rather than sinking to the axle.
We also have grade 2 and 3 rides on our website (http://wildernessweekends.com/) if you think you'd like something more technical.
Komoot have a really useful trail terrain scale which I will use to describe the difficulty of the trails we use. Have a look at the link below before reading on.
Using the above scale the trails you will take during a grade 1 ride are:
Trails void of or with few difficulties. Mostly wider paths comprising compacted gravel or solid earth. Roots, rocks and uneven ground is not to be expected.
Trails comprising mostly compacted gravel or solid earth with some flat roots and smaller rocks. The surface may become loose at times and periods of stand-up riding may be required to overcome obstacles.
If you are familiar with trail park grading these trails would rank as mostly green with some low end blue.
You’ll be working up a sweat. Bring along a touch of enthusiasm and a little determination
