Frequently Asked Questions

 Is this off-road ride for me?

This is a day of real mountain biking – with climbs and descents on off-road trails. If your off-road cycling experience is limited, you should probably be cautious about whether this is right for your current level. If you’ve ridden on off-road tracks before, you’ll be familiar with the skills you’ll need for the gravelly climbs and the fun bumpy downhill parts – and our expert guide is there to remind you.

If you have good cycling fitness, a sense of adventure then this ride will be a good fit for you. But if your expectation of cycling is for something generally sedate, relaxed and road-based, this adventurous day may not be right for you – yet. If you would like to talk this through with our experts, then please contact [email protected].

Should I stay for 2 or 3 nights?

That’s totally your choice! If you stay for 2 nights then you have a late check out to 3pm on the day of departure which will allow you enough time to arrive back from The Beach Littlehampton, freshen up, pack your bags and go! However, if you are looking to linger longer after all the activities we encourage this, this last night will allow you to relax before departing the next day.

What should I bring for the activities?

Clothes suitable for the weather and activity. For example, shorts or trousers with layers and waterproof or lightweight jacket for mountain biking. Please bring suitable footwear for paddleboarding, either wet suit shoes or an old pair of trainers you don’t mind getting wet. Don’t forget your swimming costume and trunks! (Please note a wet suit will be provided for paddleboarding)
