Mountain Biking in the Surrey Hills

Having bought this month’s MBR magazine (November 2012) after a tip off the D’Andy, I was rather pleased to see us namechecked as part of their City Limits feature covering mountain biking in South London. OK, so we’re not (quite) in South London, but to be recognised for our North Downs and Surrey Hills activity is very nice. I guess we’re doing something right…

It wasn’t just us either. Long-time site sponsor Astounding Adventures (as Singletrack School) also got a mention for their Love to Ride trail guiding service. In my view the Surrey Hills have some of the best networks of open-access trails around but I’ve found myself tempted by Tilgate Bike Park, just south of Gatwick, which is also covered. Somehow I’ve never ridden there and a visit sounds long-overdue.

And the rest of the magazine? Actually rather enjoyable with an article on Antur Stiniog in North Wales which I’m due to ride next month. Looks great!

About the author

Matt is one of the founding Molefathers of the Muddymoles, and is the designer and main administrator of the website.

Having ridden a 2007 Orange Five for many years then a 2016 YT Industries Jeffsy 29er, he now rocks a Bird Aether 9 and a Pace RC-627.

An early On-One Inbred still lurks in the back of the stable as a reminder of how things have moved on. You can even find him on road bikes - currently a 2019 Cannondale Topstone 105 SE, a much-used 2011 Specialized Secteur and very niche belt drive Trek District 1.

If you've ever wondered how we got into mountain biking and how the MuddyMoles started, well wonder no more.

    All publicity is good publicity, so they say!

    Reading the article I realised I hadn’t ridden Tilgate during or since the said improvements so it will be interesting to have a look soon.

    Tilgate, yes please. I’ve been meaning to visit the place for a while. If it doesn’t rain too much, how about visiting as a warm-up for Antur Stiniog?
