It cannot be argued that family cycling expeditions are a great way to bond with friends and family, get some valuable exercise and enjoy the fresh air and scenic surroundings. This can be true wherever you cycle, but the Gosport area presents cyclists with the opportunity to enjoy whiling a morning, afternoon or evening away on a bike in one of the most beautiful areas of the UK.
A flat terrain and vast cycling tracks elevate Gosport as one of the premier cycling destinations in the south of England. The six miles of accessible coastline stretching from Gosport Town Centre to Lee-on- the-Solent enable cyclists to easily navigate the town, whilst enjoying some of the best views of Portsmouth Harbour, the Solent and the Isle of Wight.
Those wishing to stretch their legs and travel to Portsmouth Harbour can take a ferry. Docking at the harbour, cyclists can tour the Millennium Walkway and enjoy breath-taking views of the Spinnaker Tower, whilst keeping a weather eye on the horizon for the boats and ships that come into the harbour every day.
Venture to the old Gosport Fareham railway line and cyclists can enjoy more than two miles of quiet cycle track leading to the Holbrook Leisure Centre in Bridgemary. Alternatively, there’s yet another old railway line that extends from the town centre, across Little Anglesey Lake, past Georgian Crescent to Stokes Bay.
Grab a refreshing drink and a bite to eat at the beachside café and while away the time as you watch ships traverse the Solent. Whilst at Stokes Bay, why not stroll along the pebble beach or along the promenade, visiting the charming local shops. You could even get a round in at the crazy golf centre!
From Stokes Bay, cyclists who are feeling a mite adventurous can cycle west to Lee on the Solent. This traditional seaside town has clear waters ideal for a dip in the ocean, grassy cliff tops where you can stop for a picnic – there’s even a shopping centre, cafes and restaurants if you fancy a later afternoon meal before heading back.
