The proposed alternative cycle route from Exceat Bridge to Chyngton Lane is now open. Cyclists can now avoid the busy A259 climb into Seaford from the Golden Galleon pub. Unfortunately the surface of this newly opened alternative is not suitable for road bikes.
Cyclists still have to contend with the narrow bridge and the narrow section of A259 up to the Pump Barn at Seven Sisters Visitor Centre, but this is an excellent addition to NCN2.

Cycle Seahaven have worked with Sustrans for a number of years to get this route opened, and we continue to push for more cycle routes in Seaford, Newhaven and Peacehaven. If you have any ideas for cycle routes then please get in touch on our contacts page, or add a comment below.
