A view on Havant Borough Council’s new Hayling Island plan. It demonstrates how the plan will change the nature of the island. It doesn’t, however, make alternative suggestions for how HBC can meet the demands of central government. If it doesn’t meet those demands, it risks losing control over development altogether.
We will, of course, be keeping a close eye on developments, not least the planned upgrade to West Lane which should include a provision for cycling.
Well, Hayling Island is the right place to be. There are some that claim there is a ‘hill’ in St Peter’s Road but it’s an undulation at most.
Once you get off the island, however, it’s a different story. We have some fantastic cycling in the South Downs Country Park but hills are virtually unavoidable if you want to enjoy the scenery, or commute any distance.
Let’s be clear about one thing: there’s no shame at all in getting off your bike and pushing it up a hill. None at all. Everyone’s had to do it. If you’re not used to hills, the chances are you’ll be pushing at some point. Don’t let it spoil your ride.
I’ve written an article that explores different aspects of cycling hills. You can read it here.
This is the article we submitted for the November edition of the Hayling Islander. The published article was subject to editing by the Islander.
You may have seen the road works in Langstone alongside the main road. Havant and Hampshire councils are building a shared path to allow cyclists to ride safely between the Billy Trail at Mill Lane and the Langbrook Restaurant. The next phase will link all the way to Tesco and beyond.
