Where can I cycle on Hayling?

We’ve created a cycle map of Hayling that you can download from this site. You can get a printed copy from several locations on the island including the Information Centre at Beachlands and the library.

Portsmouth City Council publish several cycle maps that include Hayling Island or are within easy reach of the ferry (which has provision for bikes).

We’re running several projects campaigning for improvements to cycle provision on the island. If you’d like to support our efforts, please subscribe to the supporter’s newsletter.
