Downslink bikepacking to Fair Oaks camping with the children
Phillip went gravel riding.

The downslink follows the line of an old railway connecting the north and South Downs way. It’s great with children as it’s almost completely off-road and pretty much flat. Lots of coffee stops on route and we made a shortish diversion at the bottom to stay in a campsite rather than wild camping.

Thank you for sharing your ride @Phillip, I did not know the Downs Link but it looks perfect for an off-road ride, I'll make sure I include it in a future gravel ride!
Thanks, it’s a lovely route, hard packed surface and slightly downhill if you travel north to south (making it great for kids but it’s also really nice for adults!)

Ah, I'm an 'out-and-back' kinda guy and will be coming from the North, so I guess the way back will be all slightly uphill for me... 😅

Haha. Me too but I had two young children and it poured with rain all day the following day so has to abandon the return
