A EASTBOURNE cycling group has appealed to youngsters and their families to get on their bikes for the summer.

Bespoke Cycling Group is keen to encourage people to get out and about on two wheels during the summer hols.

A spokeswoman for the group said, “Need free fun ideas for the children this summer holiday?

“Did you know there are several traffic-free cycle lanes in the area? Cross Levels Way, Shinewater Park to Polegate, and the Cuckoo Trail are all off-road and mainly flat.

“On the seafront, Fishermen’s Green through to the harbour is a nice flat off-road path next to the sea.

“You can continue to Pevensey Bay and beyond, mainly off road. If you have mountain bikes, there are lots of trails on the Downs to enjoy.”

East Sussex County Council produces cycle maps for routes across the borough which are available from the Tourist Information Centre in Cornfield Road. The cycling group is also currently working with Eastbourne Borough Council to draw up on a cycle map for the town.

Janice Vango from Bespoke said, “Bespoke arranges mass rides around Eastbourne for all ages and abilities. We monitor danger zones around the town. We encourage safe, considerate cycling with the wearing of helmets, high visibility clothing and lights.

“We would love to hear from you about cycling in your area.”

The next Bespoke meeting takes place Sunday September 11, at the Prince Albert Pub, Old Town at 8pm. The group is also organising Mass Ride in Eastbourne on September 25 and has said everyone is welcome to take part.
