Cycling in and around Brighton

Brighton and the surrounding areas are perfect for cycling. Cycling in Brighton & Hove is quick, easy and enjoyable and the city is now part of the National Cycle Network, as well as being one of 18 nationally selected Cycling Towns (and one city!)

Cycling on the Sussex Downs

If you want to get out of the city, the stunning South Downs are ideal for cycling. The bridleways and byways on the South Downs can be used  by cyclists and there are many trails available. The Visit South Downs website offers a handy trail finder to help you find a route suitable to your cycling ability.

Or if you fancy a guided cycle tour, So Sussex offer some great guided cycle trips, taking in some of the most picturesque cycling in the South.

Cycle hire

If you don't have your own bike or are visiting the area and want to hire a bicyle get in touch with the Brighton Cycle Hire underneath Brighton Station or Brighton Sports Company on the seafront.

Stay safe

Cycling in the Sussex countryside is a safe and enjoyable activity. But to ensure you maximise your enjoyment we recommend following these simple cycling safety guidelines.
