Have your say

If you would like to do more exercise, care about the environment and are tired of the cost of cars, buses and trains burning a hole in your wallet, then now is the time to join Fume Free Friday in Lewes.

Organisers are running cycle trains from Eastbourne, Brighton, Ringmer, Seaford and Newhaven into Lewes so you can join a big group and get to work with a smile on your face.

As a reward you can even look forward to a free breakfast and cup of tea at the end on Friday April 8.

The rides are led by volunteers and all cyclists will meet by Cliffe High Street Bridge at 9am at the end in time for breakfast and a photo shoot.

Fume Free Friday is designed to encourage people to leave their cars at home and try a different way of getting to Lewes.

It also aims to improve air quality, cut congestion and encourage an active and healthy lifestyle.

Lewes District Council senior pollution officer John Nicklin said: “It’s lots of fun riding with others, so we hope you will join us for this social morning ride.”

The Cliffe High Street will also boast stalls and demonstrations on Fume Free Friday.

Stalls will showcase bikes, sustainable transport alternatives and food.
