Wonderful route that offers such variety! Suggest start at The Earl of March pub in Lavant (they let us leave our car in car park). Wonderful views and fab food on return. Centurion Way to Chichester easy to find from here. At end of Chichester Ship canal we used Salterns Way cycle route, via Chichester & Birdham marinas, to Itchenor ferry, across to Bosham Hoe. We turned right on beach and followed path to road, where you can go right to Bosham if not high tide (prettiest) or left if high tide. From Bosham we crossed A259, following B roads back to Lavant via West and East Ashling & Wood End - hardly any traffic.

Really enjoyed this round trip with all the family (4 children, aged 9-15). We started in Chichester with a trip round the Cathedral and Marc Chagall's amazing stained glass window, then down the towpath to the harbour, picnic by Birdham church, on to Itchenor. Then we took the Itchenor Ferry to Bosham Hoe, and cycled round the waters edge to Bosham. Stayed the night in Bosham. Next day, Bosham to Lavant via West Ashling and Woodend (beautiful views up to the South Downs), and along past West Stoke. Lunch in Earl of March pub (great food), and then back to Chichester via the Centurion Way disused railway line (tarmaced all the way). Great variety and easy to do as a family with lots of stopping points.

Superb route with much to see and enjoy. We took our bikes, midweek, by train to Chichester and cycled the route in a clockwise direction, using one of the OS 1:25000 maps. Took a short detour from Itchenor down to East Wittering to be beside the sea for lunch. Itchenor ferry has a website to check times and fares and we were soon enjoying an ice cream in Bosham. We had hoped to get an evening meal at the 'Earl of March' pub at Lavant, but the cheapest was fish'n'chips at £13.50 - ridiculous! Needless to say we didn't bother. The old railway line from Lavant back to Chichester is a joy to ride and delivered us straight back to the railway station. Excellent!
