Donkey Derby & Fete on Saturday 28 May

Hayling Lions Club are holding a Donkey Derby & Fete on Saturday 28 May at Legion Field (just off Legion Road), Hayling Island, from 13.00 to 16.00. Cycle Hayling together with Portsmouth CTC will have a stall with 2 Turbo Challenge bikes to see who can ride the furthest in 1 minute. This has been very well attended with over 100 riders competing in previous year’s events and is one of the ways we promote Cycle Hayling, the Portsmouth CTC club and generally encourage cycling. Come along and join the fun, and even better help to set up and manage the stall. If you can help out please e-mail at:

Father’s Day family outing and charity ride on Hayling

A good chance to encourage young cyclists when Havant Rotary organise a Father’s Day family outing and charity ride, on Sunday, June 19th, 2016. It starts from Northney Farm Field (opposite the Tea Rooms), then south down the Billy Trail to the beach, and back again for a barbecue and bouncy castle. If you know any children or grandchildren, it’s a great way to get them riding – or adults, come to that. And prostate cancer is a very appropriate charity for Father’s Day.

Riders set off after registering and collecting their free T-Shirt at Northney Farm Field from 10 am. At the end of the ride there is a BBQ and activities back at the field. Alternatively, you can picnic if you wish to bring your own food.

Find out the answers to our quiz! No racing is involved so you have time to enjoy the ride and at the same time be sponsored to raise funds for Prostate Cancer UK and Havant Rotary‘s local Charities, or you can choose to donate your sponsorship money to your own charity.

This is a fun day for families who want to have an enjoyable day out with their children and bikes. The 12 mile ride should take about 2 hours at a family-friendly pace (but you can turn round at any point along the way if it’s too difficult!). Why not get your wider family and friends to join in and make a real day of it?

Entry is only £12.50 for one adult and a child (under 18) and includes a free T-shirt. Additional children are £2.50 each to cover the cost of the T-shirt. When you complete the entry form don’t forget to let us know the sizes of T-shirt you need!
