Cycle

 

Cycling is a low emission, low impact exercise which can reduce stress and is one of the easiest ways to fit exercise into your daily routine. It can often be quicker to cycle than to travel by car for local journeys. Cycling can take a third of the time it takes to walk the same journey.

A new 7-mile Green Loop (GL) is being built to improve cycling and walking links around Bordon. The route of the GL is shown on the Whitehill and Bordon map. Upgrades to Budds Lane and the High Street will improve routes for pedestrians and cyclists making it easier and safer to get about.

Download the 'Explore from your Door' trail to discover brand new access routes around the town that make it easier to reach the new town centre and leisure centre on foot or by bike. Have fun matching the photos to the locations - but please note that the competition is now closed.
