Welcome to Marmalade MTB

The Home of Guided Mountain Biking on the South Downs, Surrey Hills and across the UK.

About Marmalade MTB

Through passion, dedication and experience, Marmalade MTB can take your mountain biking on the South Downs to a new and exciting level. Our professional guided mountain bike rides are delivered across the South Downs National Park, Surreys Hills and beyond.

Our aim is simple - to provide everything you need to explore and discover the hundreds of miles of ancient bridleways that make the perfect biking trail network in the South East of England. Based just outside Brighton, our experienced local mountain bike guide and Marmalade MTB founder Sean Howell is on hand with the Bike Bus to provide the ultimate mountain bike ride for you and your friends.

This part of the UK is sometimes overlooked for the more extreme mountain biking mecca's such as the Lake District and Scotland. However, the South Downs National Park coupled with the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty provide the perfect location to get away from the hectic city life of London. Within an hour of the capital you can be shredding the singletrack laden woodland of the Surrey Hills or taking in the big sea views and the fast rolling cross-country mountain biking of the South Downs Way.

Come and challenge yourself in this beautiful part of Great Britain. With Marmalade MTB you will get a real taste of quintessential village life in Sussex and the Surrey Hills, or perhaps you would prefer to combine your love for mountain biking with the hip culture of Brighton. The bohemian seaside city-limits are wrapped with biking that varies from the South Downs Way to the stunning parks that are festooned with hidden trails to leave any weekend visitor wanting more.

Whether it's a 1-2-1 guided ride, weekend MTB break, corporate team building day, hen or stag party, then look no further than Marmalade MTB to provide a tailored mountain biking experience for all ages, fitness levels and technical abilities. Our professional leader and guide can also assist you and your friends with training ride inspiration, guidance and experience to ensure you hit your goals and aspirations for the mountain biking challenges, races and events you have signed up for in 2017.

Take a minute to read some of the comments and feedback from the many mountain bikers who have experienced and enjoyed one of our professional guided mountain bike rides on the South Downs or Surrey Hills.
