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)
- 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
- Helmets must be worn at ALL times whilst riding. Body armour/knee/shin guards etc. are advised but not compulsory.
- No payment - no ride. Anyone without a day pass or full membership is trespassing and will be asked to leave.
- Only official, taped out lines are to be ridden.
- No unauthorized digging - if you have any ideas please talk to a committee member.
- Always give way to riders/walkers/horse riders BELOW you on the hill, ESPECIALLY when crossing the fire road.
- 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!
- 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.
- No fires/BBQs please.
- Have fun!!!
- 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.
- If you have already or do get to ride these Downhill tracks at Rogate DH then why not share your experiences with us and write a short review. Many thanks.
