The most local routes near Chichester Self Catering are:

Salterns Way – from Chichester to West Wittering across the other side of the Peninsula; and Bill Way – around Selsey.

There are new cycle routes around the new Medmerry Harbour as well as bridleways and footpaths, and two places to park if you wish to start out a bit nearer. For those who want a bit more “work” the South Downs options open up plenty of challenges.

Our cycling guests really love the area as it’s all pretty level ground, but you can always add some more work by going up by the South Downs….

If you wish to hire cycles during your stay – please contact www.summitbikes.co.uk who will happily deliver them here and collect after use too. They come with helmets etc too.

Please note – that cycling on the local roads can be hazardous due to POTHOLES – as many roads have springs under them in the wet months! It is therefore advisable to always wear a cycle helmet in case of a topple.
