Bedgebury Forest Activities

Forestry England’s, Bedgebury Forest and Pinetum is a beautiful, spiritual place. Quench is all about having fun, doing something positive, either for yourself or with family and friends, creating long-lasting memories. Hiring bikes is a great way of doing this and allows you to explore the forest and High Weald, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, discovering some of the wildlife that calls this extraordinary habitat home.

For some, mountain biking is about the smell of pine and the forest. For others, it’s the wind in their hair and an adrenaline-fuelled, mud-spattered ride, adventure and escape, being a kid again. Bedgebury forest’s all-weather, traffic-free cycling trails and paths allows you the freedom to escape and to explore.

For others, it’s about health and well-being or doing something positive, either for yourself or with family and friends. Whatever the reason we create long-lasting memories that you’ll talk about for years.

Extensive Mountain Bike Fleet

Our bike hire fleet is one of the largest available with premium hardtail mountain bikes, full suspension mountain bikes, hardtail and full suspension electric mountain bikes and kids mountain bikes to hire, buy, or demo, to ensure that the whole family can make the most of their mountain biking adventure and the mountain bike trails that Bedgebury and the Pinetum and the surrounding area of Kent, the High Weald and East Sussex has to offer.

After your ride, you can use the showers on-site or our bike wash to clean up or enjoy some food and a drink at the lakeside visitor centre and café. Our bike hire service is only a small part of what will be a day to remember.
