As part of work to establish safe cycle routes to schools Dave Mowatt is helping the Hayling Island schools and the Hampshire Travel Team explore options to set up a ‘Park and Stride’ scheme. This would allow parents to park in some of the Island’s car parks with easy walking to school.
If established, the scheme would reduce congestion at school times and increase safety for children walking or cycling to school.
We hope to see a trial scheme started early in the new school year.
Mengham Junior School pupils took part in a “Cycle Quiz” to think of as many good reasons as possible for traveling by bicycle. They came up with a fabulous total of 51 reasons why.

Just email them to firstname.lastname@example.org, and if they’re good reasons for travelling by bicycle, they will be added to the list! Continue reading “Good Reasons to travel by Bicycle”
We’ve created a treasure hunt as part of the Hayling Billy 50 commemoration. You can use it at any time and we’ve designed it so you can cycle it, walk it, ride it or even run it!

At the invitation of Headteacher Wendy Bolton, Cycle Hayling helped stage a cycling event on 11th June that involved all the pupils with bikes.
