Cycling is a great way to see the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and there are many leisurely rides in the area. Please stick to roads, bridleways or cycle paths. The footpaths arounds the Harbour can be easily damaged by bikes.
The Salterns Way is a 12 mile cycle route from the centre of Chichester to the sand dunes of East Head. Some of the route is on dedicated cycle paths and other sections follow country lanes and some roads.
Other suggested routes
Chichester Harbour Circular
- this 13 mile circular bike ride is virtually flat. Use it as the basis for a great day out for cyclists of all ages. Take time to stop and explore the ancient village of Bosham and enjoy the Harbour views. With a ferry ride and lots of pub or café stops, this will be a pleasant ride to remember.
Rides on the Manhood Peninsula
- These cycle routes are mainly on minor roads or traffic free and give access to Chichester and Pagham Harbours and the new nature reserve to be created as part of the Medmerry Managed Realignment Scheme between Bracklesham and Selsey.
