Hi are you a Portsmouth rider? Would you be interested in having a riding buddy I ride most weekends and would like to have somebody to ride with to make the journeys more interesting the longest ride I have done yet is Portsmouth to Hayling then on to Waterlooville via Rowlands Castle and then back up the A3 to Portsmouth about 25 miles how about you. My e-mail is tony.bowers@baesystems.com if you are interested I live in Stamshaw and have only been riding regularly for about 2 months now

Hi. Done this route several times. Nice ride if you want to go for a ride but, in my case, don't want to be too far from home (I live in Portsmouth and a NCN goes across the top of my road). To add a bit of a challenge, when I get to the Cosham bit I usually 'cycle up Portsdown hill, go along the hill and drop down to Drayton. The climb up the hill gives the 'ol heart and lungs a good workout!

I have to cycle to Q.A for work coming from Southsea, which is reasonable easy, but cycling home via this route is a totally different ball game. It is not easily accessible, in that you have to dismount from your bicycle several times, one to get onto the route at the beginning and then when you have got to the other side of the roundabout it is a case of dismounting at least two or three times to cross Northern Road, London Road and Copnor Road before you can get going South.
The cycle lane is poorly lit at the beginning as you come up from the under pass leading from the Tax Office (HMRC) which is not very pleasant at 10-10:30pm, so I have now made a decision to cycle on the roundabout going South, at that time of night.
I think the whole cycle path in that particular area should be reviewed by a regular cyclist who has to use it day in, day out and in the latter evening.

fine for the most part but the bit on the seafront should be closed under safety concerns and rrmoved DO NOT USE THAT BIT OF THIS ROUTE for your safety
