Folkestone has some of the best riding in Kent,but to get the best out of it you'll need a guide.There's the MOD woods at Hawkinge for a start(Reinden Wood and Pillars Wood).Then there's the cliffes from Capel to Dover.How about above and underneath the A20 viaduct,Castle Hill,Round Hill.Another place is up above the Cannel Tunnel site to Peene Quarry,you can also descend the slopes down to the Channel Tunnel fence and onto Peene village.Sandy Lane jumps and descents.Then one of Kent's best descents,from Arpinge using NDW to the defunct Elham Valley railway bridge,then upto Tolsford Hill and down the other side.Alkham Valley heading towards Dover has some steep slopes and woodland singletrack.And the Warren.
Of all the places to live for MTB this is probably the best in Kent,yet hardly mentioned on Sketchy.
