Directions
Liss train station is the closest. From there you go up to the very top of hill brow (at the mini roundabout, go past tesco express, its a fat hill). And across the road, past the jolly drover pub and take the first left down a hill into the woods. Follow that road until you get to a cross roads in the woods. Then look to your right.

Rogate Downhill B1kepark is an MTB, DH, Freeride site in Rogate near Liss in Hampshire. In 2018 it became part of the B1KE Bike Park network which includes Wind Hill, S4P and Tidworth Freeride.

In May 2018 there was a revamp with most of the bottom of the hill worked on with new features and enhanced lines. The bottom is inherently bikeparky due to being flat and otherwise boring. The technical lines remain and there are big jumps. 

The DH Trails

  • There are four or five short Downhill runs with a selection of drops, berms and jumps with progressive levels for all abilities. The terrain is quite sandy and so dries pretty fast.
  • For the more advanced riders there are big road gaps, drops, steep technical runs and large doubles.
  • The tracks are in two sections, separated by a fire road. The top section is steep and technical with the odd smoother runs thrown in. The main line starts with a 6ft drop into a berm followed by several twists and turns that spit you out into the big tables at the end. 
  • Tunnel Vision starts from the top and has a natural and techy feel.

Groups and Clubs

Events and Races

  • Rogate DH organises many events (races and of course dig days)

Other Stuff

  • In order to ride on the hill, you will need to become a B1ke member. These are available from www.b1ke.com and range from 'Free Members' to 'Full Members', with a Rogate 'Site Member' option available soon.
    Day passes are staying at £5 and can be purchased from Sam or a team member on the hill. £5 for a day ticket. Tickets are available from staff members on-site.

Rules of the hill

  1. Helmets must be worn at ALL times whilst riding. Body armour/knee/shin guards etc. are advised but not compulsory.
  2. No payment - no ride. Anyone without a day pass or full membership is trespassing and will be asked to leave.
  3. Only official, taped out lines are to be ridden. 
  4. No unauthorized digging - if you have any ideas please talk to a committee member.
  5. Always give way to riders/walkers/horse riders BELOW you on the hill, ESPECIALLY when crossing the fire road.
  6. Do not push up marked out trails. This will prevent at the very least angry remarks from unaware riders, and possibly serious injury. Use the push-ups people!
  7. If you break the tape, please take a bit of time to repair it where possible. We spend a ridiculous amount of time fixing and re-taping lines so give us a hand.
  8. No fires/BBQs please.
  9. Have fun!!!
  10. If you have a need for an ambulance follow the instructions on the notice board or call 112 - they should be able to pinpoint your exact location and thus get to you quicker. The nearest A&E is Queen Alexandra (Cosham, Portsmouth), but Chichester is a possibility.

fast becoming one of my favourite places to ride for a couple of reasons. 1. It is 20 mins from where I live. 2. It is incredibly good fun.
It is regularly very busy which creates a great vibe. due to the amount of tracks that can be ridden by all abilities, the tracks are never crowded.
It's sand based soil makes it just as good in the wet and the push up is short and steep.
Ideal for sessioning, you could spend all day here and just dial in each run for maximum thrill.
To get the most out of it, don't hammer down it over all the obstacles. The brevity of the tracks mean that you really need to accentuate every feature. Manual, whip and scrub...

Have used this venue a few times now it's great for all abilities. Every time I've been I have enjoyed myself all the riders are friendly never heard anyone say any bad about the venue

User Review

Good Points
Excellent venue to ride runs are well designed. Short runs but short push back up too. With the new fencing being put up will stop riders cutting in or across runs.
Bad Points
Again the runs are short and no where to buy a drink or food if you forget anything.

Your ability to pass up on an opportunity to ride at the site again is greatly reduced after a first visit.

Had a great couple of hours for the first time at Rogate on the way back from Portsmouth to London. It was mid week and quite early in the day so it was quiet. The few locals around were really helpful and gave great tips. What really surprised me is the day and night before the heavens had opened in biblical style yet it felt really firm and grippy.

I started on the one dot and moved onto the two dots of trails mainly on the lower half (did a couple of runs on upper half which is woodier and also fun). Most of the time was on the Main Line with a bit on the DD trails. The Main line is an awesome track as it has drops, jumps, tables and berms and the bigger drops are optional making the line quite progressive. Really fun to session.

Fun day and as I pass this place at least four or five times a year I will definitely be back soon.

Good but worth the trip to aston hill or somewhere with an uplift, great for a day mucking around on the bikes but wouldnt travel more than 1 hour to get there, but luckily im only 45 mins away but worth checking out if youre just after a chilled ride in a welcoming environment or great for a ride in the wet!

User Review

Good Points
short/easy walk up, a fair few trails, quite regular dig days to keep it running well and runs really well in the wet, a lot of potential building wise, trails are still good fun, made good use of land up there too
Bad Points
All trails are fairly similar, top half loamy, second half sandy, more wooded up top and a lot more open in the bottom however still wooded, in the dry its just too sandy and hard to ride, not much parking, no toilets or food available.

Rogate is a fantastic downhill spot, the trails are really good, well maintained and there's good variety, with tight, twisty technical dh as well as nice, big easy tables, hips, gaps and lots of drops, the dual slalom track, DD is great too, really fun, I've been to rogate 6 times.

User Review

Good Points
The trails are fun, for a wide range of abilities, they're well maintained, they have regular dig days.
The trails are really compact, all close together on one side of the hill, so you don't have to ride for ages between the trails.
The trails are well marked out with tape, and loads of signs for walk up paths etc.
Bad Points
You have to pay £4 online or £6 on the day.
Some small sandy sections can get a bit too loose after long dry periods, eg before first table on main line.

Went to Rogate for the first time recently and now I can't stop going every weekend! The trails are so fun for all abilities, the push up is really short for the length of the runs, conditions are perfect even after non stop rain, trails are well maintained and marked, all making it one of the best DH spots in south England.
