Hire a bike with us and enjoy getting further afield around the city of Brighton & Hove and beyond, along the Sussex coast, up onto the South Downs National Park or inland to rural Sussex.

Whether your celebrating with friends for a stag/hen do or birthday or on holiday there is so much to see and enjoy. Here are a few suggestions for rides.

Coastal ride eastwards to Rottingdean: Head eastwards from Brighton city centre, along Madeira Drive to the Brighton Marina, then along the stunniung Undercliff Path to the villages of Rottingdean or Saltdean. There are plenty of cafes, pubs and tea rooms to take a break at. You can also stop for a swim along the way or, if your prefer a pool, there’s the Saltdean Lido.

Coastal ride westwards to Shoreham-by-Sea: Head westwards, following National Cycle Route 2, from Brighton city centre along the seafront cycle path, past the i360/West Pier and onwards past the Peace Statue and into Hove. When you get to Hove Lagoon continue on NCR2, following Basin Road South for about 3km, through the industrial area of Shoreham Harbour. Just after Caratt’s Cafe, turn right to cross the lock gates, into Southwick. Continue to follow signs for NCR2 through Southwick Village and on to Shoreham-by-Sea. There are plenty of cafes and pubs here to take a break at.

From here you can either continue along the coast to Lancing and Worthing, by first crossing the pedestrian bridge across the Adur to Shoreham Beach.

Alternatively you can head up the River Adur on the Downslink cycle path which starts near the Ropetackle Arts Centre.

South Downs National Park & South Downs Way: A short distance from central Brighton is the South Downs National Park which has plenty of routes that are suitable for cycling. Head out of town north-east, up Valley Gardens and then the A270 Lewes Road (this has a great cycle lane along most of its length) then left into to Stanmer Park. Head through the park toward Stanmer House and onto the gorgeous Stanmer village. Pass through the village and straight ahead onto a rough track which will take you up onto the Downs. After about 2km you will get to the South Downs Way, a cycleable path that runs all the way from Winchester to Eastbourne.
