Sussex Cycling

Exploring Sussex by bike

Some of the most exciting UK cycling holidays can be found in the chalky hills of Sussex. The rolling Sussex landscape is packed full of great cycling including the 100 mile South Downs way bike ride and the Cuckoo Trail, which is perfect for family cycling holidays with its picturesque passing scenery and predominantly flat paths.

The South Downs bike trails are well-marked, spacious and wonderfully peaceful, with a great choice of variety to suit every type of cyclist. Why not try one of our E-bike itineraries if you would prefer a helping hand up some of the hills? E-bike or not, you can reward yourself after with a well-earned afternoon tea at one of our hand-picked selection of boutique hotels. These are the finest spots to rest your head in after a day exploring the East Sussex cycle routes, offering the very best in classic English country living, complete with award-winning spa treatments and prime beachfront locations.

Had a wonderful trip to Sussex, supported by customer service the entire time. Harvey even created personalised cycling tours for us and made reservations for us at a vineyard, in addition to the already provided tour options

Stunning Seaside

This region of the UK is perhaps most famous for its striking coastline. The Seven Sisters cliffs are one of the most symbolic scenes of seaside Britain. On a Sussex cycling holiday, you’ll have the chance to enjoy the wonderful beaches and towns that dot the south coast. A classic British ritual, stop off for ice cream and stroll along the beach. Famously sunny, the Sussex seaside is one of the best in Britain for a reason.

Vibrant Vineyards

The Sussex winemaking scene is making waves across the world. Rivalling the sparkling white produced in Champagne, you’ll have the chance to taste the delicious vintages this region has to offer when on a Sussex cycling holiday. Thanks to a chalk bedrock and sunny climate, the vineyards here are perfect for producing a golden sparkling wine. The best way to experience this is by enjoying a vineyard tour and tasting at one of the many up and coming estates.
