Cycling help

Free bicycle health checks will be on offer tomorrow to celebrate a new cycle route.

 

A Dr Bike gazebo will be set up at the start of the £400,000 link for two-wheeled transport across the road from Pagham Harbour local nature reserve.

 

Experienced cycle trainers and mechanics will be on hand from 10am-12.30pm to check brakes, gears, tyre pressures and lights.

 

Minor adjustments will be carried out on the spot. Advice will be given on anything that cannot be fixed immediately, including an approximate guide to the cost of repairs at a bike shop.

 

The new, 3km Pagham Harbour to Medmerry nature reserve route was completed in April to boost facilities for residents, visitors and wildlife enthusiasts.

 

A West Sussex County Council spokesman said: “The county council’s public rights of way team worked with The Manhood Peninsula Partnership on ideas to bolster tourism in the area – and found that cycling provision was under-represented.”

 

The route includes 1.2km of shared pedestrian/cycling pathway, the reconstruction and improvement of cycle route 88 and 1.7km of improvements to the path between the new route and flood defences at Selsey.
