- North Downs Way to Boxhill
Me and my friends have been scouting out the NDW from Woldingham to Boxhill. We made it to Reigate hill last week so hopefully it is Boxhill this weekend.
My question is that when we get to the Boxhill area around Pebblecombe what is the best direction for some good trails, bearing in mind that we won’t be riding too far from Pebblecombe.Posted 5 years agoSuiMember
Well if you are going to box hill, then there are trails on boxhill/headley. That’s quite a trek from Woldingham, so I suppose how much further (in hours) of riding would you want to do once at Boxhill? Most of the trails are tucked away but findable with the devil that is strava!Posted 5 years ago
I ride NDW from woldingham a fair bit, assume you’ve done trails around marden park, there’s a couple of cheeky descents around betchworth and brockham, there’s the steps down to the mole river too, be careful with walkers though, then you’ve got headly heath. I might have a few maps I can send you. You’re not that far from Ranmore, I sometimes get the train over to Tadworth and ride over to Ranmore and Leith.
A good epic day out is woldingham to eastbourne, ndw – downslink – sdw, I tried last year but bailed after un forcasted high winds at black cap lewes.Posted 5 years agotitusriderMember

Most of the trails are tucked away but findable with the devil that is strava! Probably not too far but we could get the train back. Strava? No I can only run to maps printed from the internet 🙁
Rewski – will try the areas you mentioned, don’t know them. Not sure that I would make Eastbourne myself!
Titusrider – I will check that link out, thanks.Posted 5 years ago
@ birdcage – pretty much, all though you’ll be going up and down quite a bit on footpaths. I was advised to stayed high on ranmore common and rode bridlepaths all the way to newlands corner, then dropped down into st marthas hill and pick up the downlink near there, it was quite hard going around st martha’s, I ended up on a very sandy bridlepath, it was very dry too.
Start wise I would ride up to the NDW via Caterham School, there’s a footpath that takes you all the way up to the bench the top of the NDW, nicer than riding up the bypass, you probably know that already.
It’s a nice ride, downlinks is a bit dull but knowing what’s coming at shoreham makes it worth while.Posted 5 years ago
