Lurking in the fields and woods of the South are some incredible relics of past generations going back to the end of the ice age. They are waiting to be found if you know where to look.

People have been living in this landscape for thousands of years. The relics of their lives are out there, waiting to be found if you know where to look. Our archaeo-safaris, designed by two professional archaeologists and mountain bikers, bring together top-drawer riding, amazing scenery and unbelievable archaeology.

In our company, you will discover brilliant riding and the story of how this landscape came to be.

Join us as we go in search of the past.

The henge and stone circles at Avebury are world famous and draw visitors from around the globe. But there is an incredible array of other monuments nearby to discover just beyond the village. Whether you are looking for prehistoric burials, hillforts or chalk figures, you will find a stunning monument to float your boat in this very special landscape.

We’ll take in some big skies and chalk ridges in an unashamed tour of the absolute best archaeology that the Avebury area has to offer. Woven together with open chalk trails and the odd bit of singletrack we will be seeking out some of the best, most exciting and most enigmatic monuments in the country.

The Trundle, near Chichester, is one of the cradles of mountain biking in Sussex. But, that’s not why we are here. The Trundle also has an unbelievable story that stretches right back to the Neolithic almost five thousand years ago.

Archaeologists and antiquarians have known about the incredible monuments in the part of the South Downs for hundreds of years. They have left us with places called The Trundle, The Devil’s Humps and Bevis’ Thumb. What could they all be? On this ride, we go in search of uncovering the stories behind these monuments that have fascinated people throughout history.

Being the South Downs, we will also be riding some choice trails through lovely scenery. The views aren’t bad either.

Join us on a voyage of discovery.

Stane Street was the Roman Road that connected Chichester to London nearly two thousand years ago. How many rides use an actual Roman Road as the core of their route?

There’s more though, because we’ll be using Stane Street to connect together some incredible locations. There is a Neolithic settlement, Bronze Age Barrows, an Iron Age Hillfort and the medieval park at Slindon. We’ll also stop at one of the oddest Second World War locations in the South Downs.

As ever, we’ll combine this with fine riding through the beechwoods and Houghton Forest where singletrack is waiting to be ridden.

Join us as we take a ride along Stane Street.
