Muddy says: With a super-handy location at a railway station just under the South Downs, Chalkpit Trails is your gateway to a regular or electric two-wheeled adventure
One of the few options for easy access South Downs cycle hire, Chalkpit Trails offers pick ups and drop offs from Amberley railway station in West Sussex.
Regular and electric mountain bikes are available – perfect for mixed ability couples or groups. Choose from the X-Caliber 7, Specialized Rockhopper Comp or the electric Powerfly 4. You can also hire children’s trailers.
Chalkpit’s husband and wife team Abby and David regularly hit the local trails in and around the South Downs, with and without their four children and can recommend many local routes.
The service is available daily 10.00 – 18.00 (pick up times 10.00 and 18.00 and return times 14.00 and 18.00).
Events and groups
Look out for special events on certain dates like the Cycle and Brewery Tour taking in Langham brewery when you can be picked up with your bike after the beer tasting session.
Special experiences, for instance a private wine tasting at a Sussex vineyard, can be arranged for groups and there’s a discount for bookings of 6+
Chalkpit Trails can also recommend places to stay in the area if you’re planning on a weekend break or longer.
