As you would expect with Burgess Hill being located on the edge of the South Downs National Park, there are lots of beautiful walking trails in the area.
For information about walks in the area, check out these resources:
There’s also a walking club, Sussex Pathfinders. They organise half day, and full day walking groups at weekends all year round, all over Sussex. There’s an £8 annual membership fee, but newcomers are welcome to try out a walk for free.
Meet up is another useful resource for walking groups.
Being so close to the South Downs, there are lots of places to cycle (though it can be quite hilly). Find out more about places to cycle here.
For the serious rider, The Sussex Nomads Cycling Club runs from nearby Ditchling (3.6 miles away). Adult membership is £20 per year. New members of all abilities always welcome. Social rides are organised on Sundays, usually in four groups of different abilities. Rides tend to be 1.5 to 2 hours in duration. There’s also an annual charity bike ride, which takes place in June each year. Find out more here.
