Self Guided Routes
Cycle Brighton are keen to ensure you have a great time cycling. We have therefore developed a range of self-guided routes for all types and levels of cyclist. The majority of our rides are day rides (2- 4 hours cycling). However, we are regularly asked about multi days rides/ holidays and so have introduced this as a new category. As well as suggesting specific routes we also provide links to other information sources.
Our leisure and family rides are mainly flat and are predominantly on dedicated or shared cycle routes. Ride along the coast eastwards to the pretty village of Rottingdean or westwards to Worthing Pier and beyond. Further afield head inland along the River Adur to Bramber Castle on the famous Down’s Link cycle path or follow National Cycle Route 2 to the spectacular Seven Sisters Country Park.
Brighton is a great starting point to access and rides in the beautiful Sussex South Downs . There is a wide range of routes to choose from depending on your experience as an off-road cyclist. We have some excellent circular routes that are a great introduction to mountain bike / trail riding - some hills but nothing too onerous. We also suggest some more challenging rides and areas where you can develop your riding skills.
The topography of the South Downs with its rolling hills means that there some very rewarding rides combining some beautiful scenery, charming Sussex villages with some challenging ascents and descents. We suggest a range of rides with distances ranging from 20 to 40 miles.
Sussex and the surrounding counties offer some fantastic longer distance cycle routes. From the famous and challenging 110 miles off road, South Downs Way to tours that take in our coastline, historic towns and picturesque villages we think we can suggest a route meet your needs. We can support you with bike hire, luggage transport (or panniers) and route maps and guides. We also provide links to accommodation providers.
