The Sandy slopes of Combe Hill that provide the setting for Rogate Downhill have been a favourite spot for mountain bikers since the dawn of the sport. As the years rolled by the site developed, reflecting the sport’s development. Traditionally a tale of two halves the upper site offers steep and techy trial with the lower site and its lessor gradient offering up jumps and drops galore.

Since being adopted by B1KE the balance has been addressed and already we have added top to bottom flow lines as well as a wealth of techy options lower down the site.

Filling in the holes in the progression pathway means the site now offers options for a far wider range of rider abilities. The new installations and reworking of old favourites has created a site that offers terrain to suit all and actively encourages rider progression.

Upper Site

Fast, flowy and as rowdy as you want it to be. As easy or hard as you make it. A new line from the top of the hill is a great way to warm up and a great addition in providing the less experienced rider with a safe starting point and more experienced riders a fun flowing warm up.

A new hand carved top section that includes a bit of everything, Roots, rocks, jumps and lines all over the place. Get creative and be rewarded.

Loose. Goose-like! Get acquainted with rolling rocks and off-cambers.

Steep chutes and deliciously sandy turns. A helping of rock adds to the flavour.

Steep, narrow and testing. The flow is there if you can find it!

The Clue is in the name…a trail original conceived by Sam & Mike. Gaps, Step downs, Camber and steeps….coming soon and a mind blower for the that like to merge the best of mother nature with hand crafted hits.

Hang a left at the end and you can reach for the stars or straight on and hit a line of small tables perfect for getting used to air beneath your wheels….either way you’ll head straight back up for another run.

A true favourite and a line that has been redefined more often than wheel sizes. Drops, jumps, rough and smooth. Fast! A little bit of everything really and a trail that used to define Rogate. Options galore and and smiles all the way down. Tables, Drops, on-offs and gaps…what’s not to like.

– flat-out fast with some big ol’ hits if you want them. Go on, scare yourself!

Splits half way down into Bikini Bottom. Starts natural with heaps of key line options; ends in a real bikepark straight with some banger hit

Pealing off Split Richard, Bikini Bottom is  fast with an open-ended step-down into some killer berms and tabletops.

Classic, natural turns, littered with roots and railing on marbles. Leads into the revamped 6-pack for those that like to boost as well as roost.

Bring shades of ‘Shore to the hill. Linking with S & M on the upper Hill, this trail will add something that’s been missing from the UK scene for way too long…its a wait and see for now but we’ll have this ready before the Summer is out.

Understand the Lozenge Grading System

The Lozenge grading pertains to the Technical Trail Features (TTF’s) that the trail includes. This can be Drops, Steep Chutes, Jumps (Tables or gap Jumps) Road gaps and Berms.

A single lozenge denotes small, rollable features. Hit at speed this may lead to airtime but the is no requirement to leave the ground if riders do not wish to and control their speed

Two Lozenge trails will contain Technical trail features of a medium to large size. A trail with a two lozenge grade MAY contain features that can not be rolled but where these are present there is always an option to by-pass them without needing to leave the ground.

You can expect to find jumps on these trails but these are designed so that they can be rolled if the rider controls their entry speed

Three lozenge trails will include features that can not be rolled and are unavoidable.

The size of features will vary from small to very large – the key point of note is that you can not opt to avoid these or roll them.

Riders should be capable of, and expect to leave the ground in order to complete these trails.
