cyclingCycling in Eastleigh

Eastleigh Borough Council is committed to creating a comprehensive network of cycle routes across the Borough.  Already a substantial part of this network has been built, particularly in Eastleigh itself, and in Hedge End.  In total there are over 44Km of dedicated cycle routes within the Borough with over 40 locations with cycle parking facilities, including at all the railway stations serving the Borough.  


Borough-wide Cycle Map

A Borough-wide cycle map is available to help you plan your cycle journeys and find new, convenient and safe routes around the Borough and beyond.  This map has recently been updated for 2014.

For a paper copy of this map, please contact Richard Pemberton (richard.pemberton@eastleigh.gov.uk or tel 02380 688 280).   

 

Cycle Journey Planning

Several journey planning websites exist.  The best of these is Cyclestreets:

www.cyclestreets.net

By inputting your start point and destination, you can search for the quickest, quietest or most pleasant route for your cycle trip. The route is then displayed on a map with turn by turn instructions. The gradient profile of the route, the journey distance and the estimated time are also included.

TransportDirect also offer a similar cycle journey planner. Please click this link to use this alternative cycle journey planner.
