Cycle Hayling has moved. No, not off Hayling! Just from cyclehayling.org.uk to cyclehayling.org. So please update any bookmarks and address books. It’s a side-effect of upgrading our website and email to the latest technology (thank you Andy), but we like it being shorter too! The old address auto-forwards – but only for a while.

We’ve moved from www.cyclehayling.org.uk to cyclehayling.org.
We were encountering a number of issues with our old service provider culminating with a problem sending emails to supporters. We therefore decided to move to a new service provider. The easiest way to do that – given the issues we were having – was to change server address at the same time.
The new site addresses the issues we were having. Not least, we’ve been able to activate https encryption. We’re no longer being labelled as ‘Not secure’.
Please update any site links you have. Also, any email addresses: firstname.lastname@example.org become email@example.com. For the time being the old addresses will continue to work but we can’t guarantee for how long.
You shouldn’t see any difference between the old and new sites. Please let us know if you spot any issues.
Here’s what we submitted for our Hayling Herald October 2022 column, with online links and more pictures ….

Consultation now closed.
Are the council’s doing enough to encourage cycling and active travel, and reducing our dependance on cars? Well given that most Hayling Islanders can’t even cycle to Havant safely and easily – it’s clear they’re NOT! And now’s your chance to say so.
Hayling Island Lions are holding their annual Donkey Derby at Legion Rd, Hayling Island, PO11 9ES on Saturday 4th June from 1.00pm to 5.00pm. Included in this special ‘Jubilee’ fete will be a joint Cycle Hayling/Portsmouth CTC stall running our usual Turbo Challenge competition where using static bikes mounted on trainers, riders see how far they can pedal in one minute.

What’s YOUR vision for Cycling and Walking on Hayling?
Cycle Hayling is trying an experiment this month. Our County Councillor, Lance Quantrill, had some ideas for the Billy Trail and reducing traffic, and asked to base them on our well-known Cycle Hayling cycle map, to trigger discussion. We’re always up for ideas, so of course we said yes. Continue reading “Hayling Herald article for April 2022”

Hayling’s Sea Front does need a refresh, and the Council’s Regeneration Plans look to do that. They said cycling and walking is at their core, but when we looked at the map, it wasn’t clear how. Please keep reminding your councillors about it. There simply isn’t room for any more cars. Check out Cycle Hayling’s 10-point regeneration comments at cyclehayling.org/regen.

Several cycle paths on Hayling have barriers, which are now recognised as hindrances, not just to to cycling, but to double buggies and the disabled as well. And some which prevent the “Cycling Without Age” electric trishaw from giving disabled people fresh air.
See our 2021 Safari here, which saw 67 Islanders getting their maps stamped at up to 16 venues across the island, and more doing it just for fun. For more details, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or Councillor Lance Quantrill.
