It’s Cycling UK’s Bike Week, so this Saturday morning’s the perfect time for a Cycle Hayling ride round the island to celebrate easing of lockdown!
- Meet at 10:00 at the Hayling Community Centre.
- Then we’ll check out the 3 cycle projects the council is implementing this summer – at long last – at Hayling Park, Salterns Lane and St Mary’s Church.
- Then we’ll ride from Mill Rythe roundabout to Yew Tree Rd. Some of us will make a point by braving the main road, but there are two footpath options if you prefer – we’ll wait for you at the Yew Tree. And we’ll explain why it’s so important to make that a proper, safe cycle path.
- Then we’ll ride the Northney Loop to the bridge, and back up the Billy Trail .
- We’ll aim to finish about 12:00 at the Community Centre, with an optional chat about what we can do to improve cycling on Hayling, and listen to YOUR views.
It’s open to anyone. It will be around 10 miles, at gentle speeds – and we won’t leave anyone behind.
- You ride at your own risk.
- Anyone under 16 must bring a responsible adult.
- Please respect social distancing.
- You can turn back at any time – but please tell one of us so we’re not looking for you.
- We think helmets are a good idea, but it’s your choice.
- Unfortunately, it’s Hayling, so be prepared for some rough surfaces.

If you have any questions, please contact us, or email Wilf or Joy Forrow (email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org).
We’re really looking forward to meeting you!

Will this be suitable for a trike – my son uses a three wheeler.
Hi Diane. I would hope so. There are two possible issues:
1. If you don’t want to cycle down the main road, the footpath alternatives are a little narrow in places.
2. There are some rough surfaces in places, but we’ll go slow.
But we’ll try and help if we can.
