Royal Tunbridge Wells has a network of cycle trails that you can pick up from Broadwater Forest Lane, see below for the link mapmyride.
For those who want a more rural ride there are two national SUSTRANS cycle routes passing within 1 mile and actually join Broadwater Forest Lane on which the cottage is situated. Route 18 is 61 miles long and runs from our local village of Groombridge, then through Tunbridge Wells and on to Canterbury through some of Kent’s most lovely villages.
Route 21 you can pick up in nearby Eridge village, it runs from Greenwich to Eastbourne and has some challenging cycling.
For beautiful scenery the cycle rides on Ashdown Forest are both a challenge but also on roads with a 40mph speed limit. The high ground of Ashdown Forest offers spectacular views north to the north downs and south to the south downs.
For off road cycling the Forest Way Country Park runs from Groombridge to Hartfield (10 miles). Built over a former railway line this is a fairly flat route, until you reach the last section from Forest Row to East Grinstead. Cycle and stop off for a drink or a snack at one of the many pubs or cafes on route. Forest Row is worth exploring for its quirky shops. Java and Jazz is a great place to have a coffee or a light lunch. http://www.javaandjazz.co.uk/
