Try out a route from the Britain's Best Wild Rides guide with our very own Max Darkins and TINCUP Whiskey

Fancy joining us for a mountain bike ride in the Surrey Hills? Our routes specialist Max Darkins, of Rough Ride Guide, will be leading a guided trail ride there on Saturday 9 November (2019).


It'll be based on the route in our Britain's Best Wild Rides guide – which came free with the mag earlier this year – so you know you're guaranteed some great trails.

Not only that, but it's being supported by TINCUP Whiskey, sponsors of the guide, who'll be providing whiskey cocktails and a bite to eat post-ride.


The ride will start from the Royal Oak pub in Holmbury St Mary. It's free of charge, but you'll need to let us know in advance if you want to come. Over-18s only, we're afraid. To sign up or for more details, email
