We’re the most important cycling centre in East Kent, offering opportunities for first timers and gentle family rides through to elite cyclists. 

Occasionally parts of the Park are booked for exclusive use. Please check our closure information before your visit.


Parts of the Park, including the tarmac track and mountain bike trails, can be booked by third-party organisers such as clubs and groups. Please note only the parts of the Park specified below are closed and the rest of the Park is remains open to all visitors during these times.


SURVIVAL takes place at Betteshanger on 7th October. This event will cover the whole park. As a result, the tarmac track, mountain bike trails and bike hire will be closed for the day. For safety reasons, cycling will not be permitted in the Park on this day. SURVIVAL will be quite a spectacle, if you're not taking part in the event, we urge you to come along as a spectator.

In preparation for the event, there will be some disruption to the red route mountain bike trails and leisure paths from Wednesday (4th October) afternoon. Everything will be open as normal on Sunday 8th October.
