Southbourne Promenade, near Bournemouth
Southbourne Promenade, near Bournemouth
Southbourne Promenade forms part of a promenade which stretches for 10 miles along the seafront at Bournemouth. The promenade is on the route of National Cycle Network route 2. However, during the peak summer holiday months of July and August, the promenade is closed to cyclists between 10:00 and 18:00. Between these times, cyclists must use an alternative route.

In this view, the cliffs in the distance to the right are The Needles, at the western tip of the Isle of Wight.
National Cycle Network Route 2

National Route 2 will link Dover with St. Austell when complete via the south coast of England and is sometimes referred to as the South Coast Cycle Route.
The route is only fully open, at present, and signed between Dover and Brighton, but is still under development between Brighton and St. Austell.

The National Cycle Network

The National Cycle Network is a network of cycle routes. It was created by the charity Sustrans LinkExternal link (Sustainable Transport), aided by a National Lottery grant.

Many routes aim to minimise contact with motor traffic, though 70% of them are on roads. In some cases the NCN uses pedestrian routes, disused railways, minor roads, canal towpaths, or traffic-calmed routes in towns and cities.
