Cycling in Portsmouth
In Portsmouth, travelling by bicycle is one of the easiest ways of getting about.
The city is very flat and compact, with few steep hills to climb, so you are never far from your destination. Many journeys that you may usually make by car are ideal for cycling thanks to the network of cycle routes that Portsmouth has to offer.
For those longer journeys it is possible to combine cycling with either a bus or train. And remember, maintaining and using a bike costs much less than owning and running a car.

Contact the Visitor Information Service for information on cycle hire in the city.
