This 9-mile cycle route takes you from historic Chichester on an exploration of the Manhood Peninsula, using traffic-free paths and quiet roads. With two RSPB nature reserves along the way, it’s ideal for a day out.

Chichester is a striking Georgian city with famous ancient walls.

Using sections of National Cycle Network Route 2 and Regional Route 88, the ride starts close to Chichester station.

Here, there is an on-road section, but you soon join a cycle path toward Hunston and North Mundham. At North Mundham, take care crossing into Church Road.

The route then continues on country lanes and clay track toward Pagham Harbour.

The route takes you to the visitor centre of RSPB Pagham Harbour – an ideal stopping-off point.

There are toilets and a visitor centre and, if you’re a bird lover, you’ll have fun spotting egrets, terns, geese and more.

From Pagham Harbour, you can follow a traffic-free link to RSPB Medmerry, where lapwings and avocets can be spotted.
