Cycle / Footway Open – Now we Must Move on

With the completion, at long last, of the cycle / Footway linking Rye & Rye Harbour we must move on and get the cycle route around Rye under construction.

This route would circumnavigate the town, linking the existing Cycle / Footways from Lydd to Rye, Cadbrough to Winchelsea and the new Rye Harbour route.

It would mean that Tilling Green, The Old Ferry Road School site, the Scout Hut, the Freada Gardham, Rye College, Rye Primary, the Skateboard Park, The Salts, The sea Cadets HQ  and The Strand would lie on the Cycle / Footway.

This is the plan that Rye Councillor  Sonia Holmes presented to Rye Town Council in 2006 and which was accepted in principal by Rye Town Council at that time. Both East Sussex County Council Leader Keith Glazier and East Sussex County Councillor Paul Maynard have expressed their wishes to help push the scheme forward. Brian Mathews, Jim Hollands and Rye & District Wheelers will also actively support the scheme.
