Bikes & Horses

A good network of bridleways (paths suitable for bikes, horses and walkers) has been provided on what is known locally as the Danefield side of The Chevin – east of East Chevin Road, accessed from the Shawfield car parks. A total of 6.5km of bridleways offer some wonderful circular routes – see map.

Please be mindful that a lot of work goes into providing and maintaining a good bridleway network. Cycling or horse-riding on other paths leads to path erosion and encourages more people to follow your routes – and gives all cyclists and horse-riders a bad name.

Cycling and horse-riding is not allowed on the Surprise View/White House side of The Chevin, but is allowed along Miller Lane.
