Cyclists - room for improvement

WITH reference to the article on page 3 in last week’s Herald, I think there is room for improvement in the promotion of cycling in the town.

Eastbourne is a good town for cycling and certainly far better than other towns regarding this issue. Look how many years it’s taken for Bexhill to finally allow cycling along their promenade for example.

But does Eastbourne have many designated areas in the town centre and other parts of the town where cyclists can safely secure their bikes when using the shops and perhaps even when at work?

There are a few motorcycle spaces I’ve seen but I haven’t come across an area specially for bikes except maybe the railway station.
