Explore & Connect. Discover the natural diversity and rich culture of The Living Coast by bike.

The Living Coast is a UNESCO World Biosphere that encompasses the chalk block of the South Downs, stretching from the River Adur in the west to the River Ouse in the East, with the city of Brighton & Hove at its heart. It’s a place where people and nature come together in a world class environment of Downs, Towns and Coast. Here, you will experience floodplain meadows, river estuaries, rolling chalk hills, white cliffs, shingle beaches, chalky offshore reefs, rural villages as well as a vibrant and cosmopolitan city.

One of the best ways to discover this area is by bike and to help you explore, we have developed a series of tried and tested bike rides. The rides are graded easy, medium and hard, so no matter your ability you will be able to find something that is suitable.

Each ride starts and finishes at a train station and includes:

→ A GPS route map

→ A description of some of the natural and cultural heritage features you will encounter on your ride

→ An idea of places to stop for refreshments on the way

→ Links to bike shops, guiding services and hire facilities in the region

→ Suggestions on linking rides together

You can cycle most of the routes throughout the year, and it’s highlighted if this is not the case. The website is free to access and use. Have fun immersing yourself in the rich landscape, wildlife, culture and heritage of The Living Coast. Find our more at:

There are now some other rides to the east of The Living Coast but still within the South Downs National Park. Check them out here:
