      Tilgate Forest near Crawley in Sussex is part of the UK cycle network so it is suitable to ride mountain bikes there.

      The majority of the downhill/freeride stuff is fairly large and not for the inexperienced but there are select parts that would probably be manageable by novices.

      Tilgate Forest also has plenty of XC and Singletrack trails for you to explore and there's no restriction on when you can ride. People have clearly put a ot of work into the riding facilities so be respectful and don't wreck anything or leave litter.
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill
