Two-wheel enthusiasts are putting town cycle paths on the map.

Bespoke and the Community Environment Partnership for Eastbourne (CEPE) have teamed up to produce an updated cycle map of the Eastbourne area.

The original idea was to identify routes that were pleasant to cycle along and if used regularly could become natural corridors for bikes.

Paul Humphreys, from Bespoke, said, “The town could of course do with more cycle lanes but even now many journeys can easily be made on two wheels as Eastbourne is flat and not that large. For many journeys cycling is quicker than driving and parking is free.

“The original map was very popular and it is expected the new version will also be in high demand. The new map uses colour blind friendly colours and has extra routes including the National Cycle Routes 2 and 21.”

The map is available at the Tourist Information Office, Cycle shops within the town and can be downloaded from www.visiteastbourne.com and bespokecyclegroup.org

Stephen Lloyd MP said, “The new Eastbourne cycle map, that Bespoke have produced, is absolutely fantastic. Get on your bike and pick one up quick.“

Councillor Carolyn Heaps added, “We are delighted to work with Bespoke once again on this handy cycling map.

“With more cycling events than ever before and a range of hotels now offering cycle hire facilities, Eastbourne is fast becoming a popular destination for those seeking a more active holiday.

“This map is perfect for visitors and residents alike, to get outdoors and really enjoy the health benefits of cycling around our beautiful town and stunning countryside.”
