New routes map added to WSCC web site


The 300+ routes that were submitted by the various West Sussex Cycle Forums in 2016 as part of the WSCC Walking and Cycling Strategy are now on the WSCC web site -

This will enable anyone to reference these desired routes when planning applications come in or when developers begin discussions with planners.  The S106/ CiL funding process will be simpler when getting the routes done.

Closed cycle lane is reinstated!

A cycle lane that was closed in 2011 has been reinstated. The cycle contra-flow in Park Road, East Grinstead was closed while the weak railway bridge was being repaired - but the temporary bollards remained in place until 2015. The status of the road confused drivers and cyclists. Ros from Mason Close said At last! This is the one of the most useful cycle lanes in East Grinstead. For those using Worth Way with bikes laden with panniers, it avoids pushing a bike up the railway station steps. It also gives access to the Imberhorne area avoiding the A22.

Ride around the town of East Grinstead - a town choked with motor vehicles with little or no cycle infrastructure.

UPDATE 20/12/16: A meeting of the EG Cycle Forum will take place on Saturday 14th January at 11:00am in the activity room of East Grinstead library. Please contact Paul Brown ( for further details.

Inspired by the West Sussex Cycle Summit and frustrated at the lack of safe space for cycling in the town, local residents Paul Brown and Ros Furley have started the East Grinstead cycle forum.
