This is a 12 mile, mainly flat route with a mixture of cycle paths, roads and country lanes. The route takes us from Hampshire and into West Sussex. After leaving Havant we will ride through the historic town of Emsworth. We will be cycling along the Havant Road to Emsworth. Although this is a busy stretch of road there is a designated cycle lane which we will use. We will follow the Mill Pond path before heading towards Thorney Island and joining the South Coast Cycle route leading to the pretty village of Prinsted. There are lovely views of Emsworth Harbour and Thorney Island along the way. There is a steady climb in Stein Road heading towards Southbourne. Although not steep, it is long. We will make our way to Blooms and Wishes Cafe, Emsworth for a break. The cafe is 3/4 of the way through the ride. There is just a short ride back to the Leisure Centre after the break. Please ensure your tyres are fully inflated and bring a lock. There is a Pay and Display car park at the Leisure Centre if you wish to drive to the starting point.
