Cycle Surrey Hills is a network of over 80km of off-road cycling trails in South West Surrey where you can get active, improve fitness and experience the spectacular scenery of the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
Cycle Surrey Hills is broken down into five interlinking routes giving cyclists the opportunity to choose either a long distance ride or shorter loops. The Devil’s Punch Bowl loop takes you around the iconic Devil’s Punch Bowl with spectacular views across open heathland. Discover the Old Portsmouth Road, the Sailor’s Stone and the gruesome history of Gibbet Hill!
Please Note: This loop is mainly on bridleways that are not suitable for road bikes. Certain sections of the bridleway will be muddy in the winter and soft sand in the summer so may require you to dismount and push through. All the trails are shared with other countryside users so please remember to ‘share with care’ and give way to horses & walkers.
There are 4 other Cycle Surrey Hills Loops at Elstead, Frensham, Thursley and Puttenham all offering a challenging ride of varying lengths with breathtaking Surrey Hills views and points of interest along the way.

This route was enjoyable but technical ability is certainly required due to rocks churned up on the bridleway. The northern section is tough going through deep sand and there are some muddy sections though the golf course - something to be aware of before heading out on this ride.
