Lewes is a great place to cycle despite its spectacular hilly setting. The town is relatively compact – it is easy to plan routes that avoid most hills and are often quicker than similar journeys by car.
Situated in the heart of the recently established South Downs National Park, Lewes is surrounded by a wonderful network of country lanes and some of the best off road cycling in England. Lewes station is a rail hub for the region, providing both access for visitors and connections for Lewes cyclists to nearby stations as well as the port of Newhaven.
Cycle Lewes was formed in 1998. We rely on both our membership subscriptions and the active involvement of our members. Our Committee meets monthly and is always open to new initiatives and members.
