What’s YOUR vision for Cycling and Walking on Hayling?

Cycle Hayling is trying an experiment this month. Our County Councillor, Lance Quantrill, had some ideas for the Billy Trail and reducing traffic, and asked to base them on our well-known Cycle Hayling cycle map, to trigger discussion. We’re always up for ideas, so of course we said yes. Continue reading “Hayling Herald article for April 2022”

Hayling Regeneration

Hayling’s Sea Front does need a refresh, and the Council’s Regeneration Plans look to do that. They said cycling and walking is at their core, but when we looked at the map, it wasn’t clear how. Please keep reminding your councillors about it. There simply isn’t room for any more cars. Check out Cycle Hayling’s 10-point regeneration comments at Continue reading “Hayling Herald article March 2022”

Hayling Cycle Safari 2022

If venues can’t or won’t give you a sticker for any reason, or are closed, they (or you) can mark the form to say so. When redeeming rewards, we will use common sense to try to fill in for any missing stickers. Whether you used your bicycle yesterday, last month or last year, why not ride the Hayling Platinum Cycle Safari 2022? It’s not a race. It’s not a competition. It’s a Safari! This year, over twice as many venues, twice as far apart, and twice as many rewards to claim! Start your Safari by collecting an entry form and sticker from one of the 37 Safari Stops, or download below, then cycle around other Safari Stops to add more stickers. Collect 4 gold stickers from the 8 gold Safari Stops plus 16 more purple stickers from the purple Safari Stops and claim your free tube of Hayling Platinum Sun Lotion to clip to your bike or belt. See a sample at the Safari Stops. Carry on collecting; when you have 6 gold stickers from the 8 gold Safari Stops plus 26 purple stickers from the purple Safari Stops you also qualify for a unique memento, a Hayling Island Platinum Plaque, personalised with your name(s). Visit “Rock, Paper, Clay Ceramics” in Rails Lane to see a sample plaque. It’s free to enter, as Hampshire County Council is supporting it, and you don’t have to buy anything when you collect your stickers. A) Entrants may each claim one tube of Sun Lotion and one Plaque. B) Collect your stickers from Thursday 2nd June to Friday 30th September, inclusive. C) Visit the Safari Stops in any order and whenever they’re open – check opening hours! D) There’s no need to visit every Safari Stop – although, it’s more fun if you do! E) Claim your Sun Lotion only at Hayling Ferry (on board), The Terracotta Pot Shop, The Hayling Book Shop, Café in The Park and Stoke Fruit Farm. F) Claim your Platinum Plaque only at “Rock, Paper, Clay Ceramics” in Rails Lane. Each will be fired with your name(s). This may take up to 4 weeks if Kim and Nick get busy! Your Platinum Plaque can be mailed to you at your own cost. G) Last date to claim your Platinum reward(s) is Friday 14th October. H) As with all Safaris, leave only tyre prints and take only photographs – we’d love to see your selfies at a Safari Stop – so, please send any photographs we may use for publicity to Information collected will not be used for any purpose other than Hayling Island Cycle Safaris. Cycle Safaris are organised by Cllr Lance Quantrill, Hampshire CC and Cycle Hayling. See or print these instructions here, the map here, the sticker collector front here and sticker collector back here.

See our 2021 Safari here, which saw 67 Islanders getting their maps stamped at up to 16 venues across the island, and more doing it just for fun. For more details, contact or Councillor Lance Quantrill.
