A community group of local cyclists has produced a new edition of the popular Lewes Cycle Map.Cycle Lewes is made up of dedicated local cyclists who represent the interests of the cycling community in Lewes. Working in partnership with Lewes District Council, Visit Lewes and Lewes Town Council, they have produced an updated 2024 Lewes Cycle Map that provides cyclists with recommended cycle routes across the district.

Councillor Johnny Denis, Cabinet Member for Tourism & Leisure, said: “This is a really valuable resource for cyclists of all levels and abilities.

"We live in one of the most beautiful parts of the UK and with the summer coming, getting out on a bike is a great way to enjoy the local scenery and help us to reduce carbon emissions by leaving the car at home.

A number of new routes feature in the latest map, including the new cycle path between Polegate and Firle, a bridleway from Lewes to Iford and the recently completed Egrets Way Path down to Newhaven.

The map has town and a country section and includes cycling routes on traffic free and low traffic routes. The Lewes Town map highlights the best two-wheeled routes across the town, while the Lewes Country Routes map features the network of country lanes, bridleways and cycle paths, with rides of easy to moderate difficulty.

Ian McKay from Cycle Lewes said: “Cycling has boomed in recent years and we’ve seen many more cyclists in our town. We hope this updated map will encourage even more cycling and make it the go to means of transport in Lewes, which at times can be challenging with its narrow roads, hills and a historic street pattern.”

Cllr. Matthew Bird, Lewes Town Councillor said: “It’s fantastic to see this newly updated version of the popular Map. Cycling is a healthy, fun and convenient way to get around town. The inclusion of new cycle paths surrounding the town and suggested traffic-free routes offer Lewes’ residents plenty of choices for enjoying beautiful landscapes and visitor attractions by bike.”

The Map's production has been supported by the Ouse Valley Climate Action on behalf of the Community Lottery Fund.

A hard copy version of the map is available from the temporary Lewes Tourist Information Office located at the District Council’s offices in Cliffe Precinct, Lewes. It’s also available at the Seaford Information Centre. Alternatively visit:
