Our ride this week is awesome, 90% on Cycle Paths. We did: Warsash - Lee on Solent - Gosport - Portsmouth - Southsea - Hayling Island - Havant - Cosham - Portchester - Fareham - Gosport - Lee on Solent - Warsash

I start from the Warsah Cycles Workshop in Dibles Road, this time I go it alone for some cycle meditation. The usual route to Lee on Solent through Brownwhich Farm. I carry on to Stokes bay through Brandown where you can have a quick coffee at Breezers. Just past Stokes bay at the roundabout, I join Fort Road and follow this to Haslar Road over Haslar Bridge and to the Gosport Ferry (see picture 2).


You arrive at Portsmouth at the harbour station, go out to the main road and follow the Cycle Route 2 signs past Gunwarf, the IOW ferry and on to Clarence Pier where you continue to follow the seafront (see photo 3) past the Pyramids and the Pier and along Eastney Esplanade, eventually turning right on to Melville Road through the cut to Fort Cumberland Road and then Ferry Road where you will find the second ferry of the day, the Eastney Ferry which you hop on (see photo 4). Just check time as you can wait for up to 45mims for the next ferry.

When you get on to Hayling Island go down the road (Ferry Lane) and left into Sinah Lane. Carry along this lane until you the Hayling Billy trail (see picture 5 & 6). This is a beautiful old railway line that takes you to Langston Bridge (see photo 7). Just after the bridge, you will see a path to your left, take this path until another patH crosses it and turn left. This will take you through some houses to swing gate which you go through and turn left. Follow this path until all the way along the sea front (see photo 8) until you com across a small estuary and follow the path as it bares to the left eventually you come across the road where you tune left along the road and over a bridge (See photo 9). Just after the bridge on the left is a path that takes you down to the other side of this estuary (see photo 10). Follow this path along the sea front and next to the M27 a mile or two. Eventually you come across the Eastern Road heading into Portsmouth.


Go along the Eastern Rd over the bridge and cross the road when you see a track next to the water (called the moat) on the other side of the road. Go on to and along the track (see photo 11) and you then wind yourself along here, alway hugging the water, over a road (see photo 12) and then the foot bridge at Hilsea (see photo 13) past Hilsea Lido and over the moat bridge and towards Portchester along the A27 until you come to the crossroads by the Pall building. Cross the road using the cycle paths, under the motorway. Your trip now takes you to Fareham. I elected to stop off at Portchester Castle for lunch and then took the back roads to Cams Hall.


Just after Cams Hall you go under the railway bridge and left into Deane’s Park Road and along here until you find the Fareham & Crofton Cricket Club ground (see photo 14) and go through the park to the Gosport Road. You need to now go to the Eclipse bus road (Henry Court Way) and I do this via Lower Quay Road and Eastern Parade, popping out opposite the under pass that takes you to the Eclipse Bus Route (you know, the road where there are no cares and you can go as fast as possible :-) see photo 125.


The the end of the Eclipse route continue straight using the cycle paths, through the under pass and along the cycle path until the path stops where you turn left on to Military Road. Follow Military Road to the round about, turn lest then straight across the next roundabout and then you are on your way back to Lee on Solent. From there it is the same route back


This great route is is according to Garman, 50.52 miles, it took me 4h 17m and i burned 1,341 calories.
