On Sunday 12th August, the Cycle Hub at Centenary Park, Peacehaven, will be officially launched. The hub links numerous cycle routes both on and off road and provides a focal point for numerous cycle related activities. The launch coincides with the British Heart Foundation charity ride and will involve various organisations that have worked together to bring the project to a conclusion.
East Sussex Cycle Training’s ‘Bike Ability’ and ‘Wheels For All’:
- Bike Ability is a Cycle Proficiency program for the 21st-century. Its aim is to teach children to ride safely on the roads and encourage them to be confident on a bicycle. The program is available during school holidays.
- Wheels for All is a program for anyone who would benefit from using an adapted bicycle or for people recovering from surgery or illness. Their range of adapted bikes make cycling accessible to everyone.
Cycle Seahaven will be there to encourage people of all abilities to join them on their organised rides from the hub. The club’s focus is more on fitness and fun rather than competitive riding. As the cycle club for Peacehaven, Newhaven and Seaford it hosts a variety rides throughout the week. Why not check them out and join them on a ride?
The South Downs National Park Ambassadors will also be at the Cycle Hub to promote the National Park and provide information about some of the fantastic cycle routes available on our doorstep. Why not have a chat with them and see what you’ve been missing?
Finally, for those looking to purchase a cheap bicycle for commuting or fitness purposes the Sussex Community Development Association will be on hand to explain how they recondition donated pedal cycles enabling participants and volunteers an opportunity to gain experience and skills. They may just have a bicycle for you!
The launch of the Cycle Hub promises to be a fantastic day for those that currently use a bicycle or for those thinking about doing so.
Why not get down to Centenary Park, Peacehaven, for the Event between 7:30 am and 4 pm this Sunday?
We hope to see you there.
