Cycle training and maintenance training courses for Brighton & Hove residents

Abandoned bikes

Our Highway Enforcement Team deal with reports of abandoned bikes across the city. Bikes can quickly deteriorate if not used regularly causing an unsightly obstruction on the public highway.

Bikes are ticketed with a 14 day notice asking the owners to contact the council to claim their bike. If after 14 days the bikes are not claimed they are added to a list for removal. Removing these bikes not only helps free up valuable cycle parking spaces but also benefits a local charity.

Cycle lanes

There are cycle lanes across the city, including along the seafront, Grand Avenue and The Drive, Hove to Hangleton, with improvements currently being made along Lewes Road and Old Shoreham Road. Many of these routes form part of the national and regional cycle route network

Cycle maps

We now have a comprehensive City Cycle Facilities Map. It shows you where our many cycle facilities are such as cycle parking, counters, cycle routes and 'toucan' crossings. Plan your cycle ride using the new city cycle map revised for 2016.  There is one for the city centre and one for the city as a whole, both are .pdf attachments below.   .You can customise the map for your own use, hiding or revealing features such as landmarks, street names, quiet routes etc. Just download the map pdf you require (Inset or Main) to your pc or mac, open the document and click the layer icon (bottom of three on the left hand side of the frame) to reveal the named map layers. A layer can be switched on or off by checking or unchecking the box next to the description

Cycling safely

We recognise that cyclists are vulnerable road users so we are working with the police and fire & rescue service to reinforce safety for cyclists. We want all road users to ‘Share the road, share the responsibility’

Cycle parking

New cycle parking has been installed in the city. The new parking facilities are blocks of cycle parking with space for 10 bikes or more.
