Cycling Clubs in Southampton
Hampshire has a number of appealing cycling opportunities with attractive coastal scenery and some beautiful countryside. Not to be missed is the wonderful South Downs Way which takes you through this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on miles of off road bridleways and tracks.
Cycling provides many benefits to the general population, but children especially benefit from being able to cycle. A safe cycling environment enables children to use cycling as a mode of transport, giving them much more freedom and independence in addition to improving their health. Currently, cycling conditions in Southampton are generally poor and children have very limited transport options for getting to school, to their friend’s houses and for other journeys.
Southampton is a great place to cycle, and now there are even more opportunities to get out and about on your bike in the area. The Southampton Cycle Map shows the most popular cycle routes across the city. There are many gentle, traffic-free trails, urban cycle paths and routes on quiet roads around Southampton. The Journey Planner on this site lets you plan cycling trips that are tailored to you.
Local bike rides in Southampton are the perfect opportunity for the whole family to get together and take part in fun, community rides and explore the local area.
