South Downs Way Cyclists Route

This is the South Downs Way cyclists and riders route, which is different to the walkers route which uses footpaths in some places rather than bridleway. Map too large? Try the smaller version here

On the interactive map above, use the zoom control at left to move in and out, and the pan controls or the mouse to move around on the map. Click 'Map', 'Satellite' or 'Hybrid' to change the views. The route of the South Downs way displays as a thick red line (NOTE: if the map doesn't appear or doesn't appear correctly, please try using a later web browser, or try clicking the 'Map' button if it appears).

GPS route info is available in both .GPX (preferred) and .MMO (Memory Map) formats. Some GPS units may not have sufficient memory to accommodate the whole route in one go, so it is available both as a single file and split into a number of shorter sections (Note: Garmin eTrex users should be able to load all the sections at once).

Note that the full route is less detailed than the combination of the separate routes, so if you're really after the fine detail go for the separate routes.

The route information has been carefully compared against GPS tracklogs from actually riding the route, and as a result may differ from the OS maps (which themselves differ between the 1:25K and 1:50K). As ever, the route info presented here is simply an aid - if in doubt, use your judgement and follow the signs on the trail itself.
