As one of the South East’s most important cycling venues, there are a number of cycling activities available for you, your family and groups at Betteshanger Park.
Betteshanger Park has a smooth, traffic free tarmac track perfect for road cycling and families. Off road single track mountain biking, perfect for beginners learning the basics and red routes dotted between for advanced riders to test their skills.
Around the circumference of the park there is a gravel leisure path which is the perfect opportunity to see the park and its surroundings on a comfortable ride.
Tarmac Track / Road Cycling
Our smooth 3km tarmac track, with designated fast lane, provides safe, traffic-free cycling.
The one-directional track is ideal for road cyclists, races, coaching sessions and training rides.
We ask that all riders are mindful of crossing points and other site users when travelling at speed.
The track is great for general cycling and those looking for a safe place for children to ride.
We have over 10km of single-track mountain bike trails running throughout the Park and covering a range of terrain.
The trails have been designed with varying difficulty and for different abilities, they are perfect for both beginners and those with off-road experience.
The trails are split into blue and red, with blue being the aimed at beginners and families and red being aimed at advanced and confident riders.
The trails are clearly marked and, whilst they are for cyclists only, we ask that you stay alert to other Park users.
Please do not attempt a trail that is beyond your capability and follow park rules at all times.
You can bring you own bike with you or you can save the hassle and allow us to take care of it for you.
We have a range of adult bikes, children’s bikes, trikes, child seats and helmets to hire.
Cycle hire is available at Betteshanger Park daily.
