Following on from Bike Week 2015, an annual event that promotes cycling and how cycling can easily be a part of everyday life, here are a couple of ideas for cycle routes that takes in some of the well-known sites around our local area.
But before rushing off into the distance on your bike we suggest you make sure to read (and follow) tips we included in our recent blog “Tips to keep your back safe while cycling”.
Fareham Portchester Circular Cycle Route
This route takes in most of the borough of Fareham. It is a circular route that will take you through some lovely places such as Lee-on-the-Solent, Titchfield, Wickham and Portchester.
There are a number of uphill climbs to contend with but some wonderful pubs and tearooms to rest up at too!
You can get more information about this route on the Cycle Route website.
Cycling in Gosport is made easier with its flat terrain and good network of cycle tracks and lanes. The coastline stretching for 6 miles from Gosport Town Centre to Lee on the Solent offers a great opportunity to get in some exercise and taking in the best views of Portsmouth Harbour.
There are plenty of other cycling routes to enjoy around Gosport and you can read more on the Cycling Gosport page of the Gosport Borough Council website.
If you have any health issues it is advisable to seek the advice of a health care professional prior to embarking on exercise.
Would you benefit from a Functional Sports Assessment?
