Havant Borough Cycle Network Map 2013

The latest edition of the cycle network map is available here for download and personal printing (note: large PDF files).

Printed leaflets of the 2013 version will be made available from local libraries, cycle shops and colleges during September 2013. 

The map covers the borough and (for the first time) the southern parishes of East Hampshire (Rowlands Castle, Horndean and Clanfield) in two sheet sides and includes details of all cycle facilities at the time of publication in August 2013. It is part of a series of maps issued under the banner of the 'Solent Cycle Project' in which the Council has worked closely with environmental charity Groundwork Solent.

The map includes local information such as addresses of cycle shops, crime prevention advice, and contact details for cycling organisations, as well as the local sections of the National Cycle Network.

The other maps in the Solent series cover Portsmouth City, Gosport (with Fareham town centre) and Fareham [link to PDF cycle map}.

A set of cycle maps for routes in the Chichester District Council area is also available on their website.
