What to expect at Rogate B1kepark?

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 adapted, reflecting the sport’s development.
Traditionally a tale of two halves, the upper site offers steep and techy trail, with the lower site and its lessor gradient offering up jumps and drops galore.

Since being adopted by B1KE the balance has been addressed, adding top to bottom flow lines, increased feature placement as well as a wealth of techy options lower down the site.

Filling in the holes in the progression pathway has allowed the site to offer options for a far wider range of rider abilities. The new installations and reworking of old favourites has created a site that offers terrain that actively encourages rider progression.
Please check our trail grading system and trail map to check suitability for rider and equipment.

What does Rogate Downhill B1kepark have to offer?

An amazing variety of trails are packed into a relatively small area. Whether it’s steep technical downhills or fast and flowing jump lines, Rogate DH has them all.

Rogate Downhill is where local riders cut their teeth and took their first steps to becoming elite level riders performing at the highest level on the world stage. They still call the place home and enjoy the trails on a regular basis.
Up there with the most weather proof venues in the UK, the site runs well all year but excels when others have turned to gloop.
Rogate DH might be a small hill but it punches well above its weight.

Tended to by a full time team driven by a desire to constantly improve the rider experience, Rogate DH should be on every rider’s bucket list.

Trails

Rogate Downhill has been attracting riders to its sandy slopes for over two decades.
For many years a winter haunt for dedicated downhillers, the park is rapidly building a reputation as a year-round venue, attracting riders from all disciplines and abilities.

A choice of a growing number of trails provides a real opportunity for riders to develop in confidence and ability.
Recent years have seen a total revamp of the hill, adding two top to bottom flow trails and adding more tech trails that make the most of the awesome natural terrain

Whether you are a fan of steep and gnarly, buttery smooth booters or like to mix things up with a bit of everything, Rogate DH is a must ride location that works when all others are wetter than the proverbial otter’s pocket.

Available trail grades: Blue – Black

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.

Take the tech of some classic trails and throw in some fresh woodwork and gap jumps to get the adrenaline up. Get through this and you’re well on your way to unlocking the rowdiest of Rogate’s jump lines.

The first step on your progression path to technical trail. A fresh top section leaves ample line choice before dropping into a familiar free-flowing section, and finishing in a classic Rogate dusty chute.

They say that a change is as good as a rest, so we have refreshed an old classic from way back in the old days.
Risk Assessment is a perfect stepping stone in to the more technical terrain available across our ‘Red’ graded trails; introducing tighter turns, roots and rocks into your riding and opening up new opportunities for you within the park.

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

As old as the hill…well almost! This line has been taking shape for well over a decade and keeps on providing the goods. Tight hairpins, loose gulleys, steps, drops and cambers – all in a 30 second package!

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!

Another old favourite which has been resurrected to challenge all those with a penchant for tech! Dropping in heavy and chuting it’s way down the hill in a loose and twisty fashion for longer than seems possible for such a short bit of hill. Feet on pedals required!

The clue is in the name: a trail original conceived by Sam & Mike and completed in collaboration with DMR Bikes. Gaps, step-downs, camber and steeps…. A mind blower for those that like to merge the best of mother nature with hand crafted hits.

Lower Site

Below the fire road the frequency of hits ramps up. Whether you’re new to riding B1KEPARKs and want to roll them, or experienced and like to enter full-send mode, this trail will leave you grinning!
Hang a left at the end and you can reach for the stars, or continue 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.

The alternative ending for Bottle Rocket is a 30ft tabletop guaranteed to up the air miles!

Our favourite sessiony turns that link up into a 180 return-berm at the end. Perfect for practicing or challenging your mates at any point in the day. (Accessed via the Bottle Rocket session point)

A little bit of everything really! A true favourite and a trail that defines Rogate, with options galore 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!

Another standalone session area perfect for working on your drops, chutes and turns, and often used by coaching team. We took the old step-down from Bikini Bottom and gave it fresh purpose as a training tool.

This trail has more recycled parts than a creation of Victor Frankenstein! Options galore allow you to choose varying levels of intensity as you drop into loose, rooty turns, and finishes up with a ski jump, some rollers and a couple of tables. Variety and creativity abound.

Another trail with more options than a hot chocolate shop. Twist and turn your way down; skipping between lines and getting rowdy with your mates, before heading into the final motorway section with some classic Rogate features.

Carries on from where its top left off. More tight, techy corners filled with bulging roots, loose dust and stones; finishing with a heritage ditch gap and into the final 6 pack.

Dark, mouldy and distinctly different to other Rogate offerings, Tunnel Vision is a shout-out to distant forest trails where you have to work for your flow. Comes complete with raised skinnies and fallen-tree balance beams for extra authenticity.

Adding to the already eclectic mix of riding styles in the top half of S&M, the bottom half injects some adrenaline fuelled woodwork, techy gaps, mould woods and scatterings of line options. Not as simple as it looks, but then it was never meant to be!

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. The Lozenge system is applied within Singletrack grading.

A single lozenge denotes small features and indicates a more technical trail than other more feature-driven lines.

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 (ie on a black graded trail) but MAY also have a lesser or rollable option available.

Three lozenge trails have large technical trail features.
These will be unavoidable and require suitable ability and total commitment.
Riders should be capable of, and expect to leave the ground in order to complete these trails.
