The official route map for the 191-mile (307km) eastern part of National Cycle Network Route 2 along England's South Coast from Brockenhurst to Dover.
Starting from Brockenhurst, deep in the New Forest, this eastern part of the South Coast Route (NCN2) is almost entirely flat. Although there are no big hills to tackle, that means there hardly any down-hills to relax on either, so make sure you take plenty of breaks on this spectacular stretch of England's south coast.
Fortunately there is plenty to see and do along the way, and four ferries - across Southampton Water, the River Hamble, from Gosport to Portsmouth, and onto Hayling Island - will also help take some of the strain. Pause and take in the historic naval dockyards of Southampton and Portsmouth, marvel at the mosaic remains of Fishbourne Roman Palace, and enjoy beautiful Chichester with its stunning cathedral. From there the route heads coastwards where you ride along the promenades of Bognor, Littlehampton, Worthing, Hove and Brighton with all their Georgian and Victorian splendour.
After Seaton you head inland to avoid scaling the dizzy heights Beachy Head - the south-eastern tip of the South Downs, Britain's newest National Park. Once you rejoin the coast you ride through more quintessential English seaside towns including Eastbourne, Bexhill and Hastings. There the ancient region of `Cinque Ports' begins as does the big-skied, sparsely populated wetland area of Romney Marsh. Out of Folkestone you tackle the only real climb of the route over the Kent Downs, before being instantly rewarded with a view of Dover, the end of your ride.
