Weekends in Brighton are the perfect antidote to the seasonal flu we’ve all been suffering from, especially when you’ve got a bike and an afternoon free.
So what if you want to cycle when you are visiting Brighton? Can you just roll up (sorry) and hire a bike for the day? The simple answer is: Yes. And there’s moves afoot to roll-out (again) an official city-wide bike hire thingy.
But until Brighton gets its Boris Bikes, there are still a few opportunities for families coming to Brighton for the weekend to get on a bike and ride.
In the summer months there are several places to get a two-wheeler, and from spring you’ll see a couple of rental places spring put of hibernation from the arches just behind the sea front.
Let’s hope Boris Bikes don’t put these people out of business…
Brighton is one of those cycling towns the previous government invested money into, and it appears to have paid off. From the end of the Hove Lawns all the way to the Marina there’s cycle paths. And you’ll find them around town – even though they are confusing at first.
So if you are planning future weekends visiting Brighton, bring your bike. Or take a look at the links below to find the best in the Brighton Bike Business – they’ll soon have you up and running (riding, doh!).Share on Facebook
