Shackleford Spring Punch MTB (MTB/Gravel)

Shackleford Village Hall Shackleford Rd, Godalming

Enjoy a spectacular Spring outing across the Surrey Heaths and out to the Devils Punchbowl! Based in the tiny village of Shackleford, near Guildford, this is an accessible event with easy access from the A3, but also perfectly placed to get you right out into the countryside of the Surrey heathland! We’ve put together a fast and furious course, with an entertaining variety of trails, from the unique challenges of the greensand heaths to the unexpected gnarl of the Punchbowl descents! There’s a bewildering network of trails around here, but we’ve used our local knowledge and experience of the area to pick out the very best spring circuit – all you have to do is ride and enjoy!
