Logo for BEspoke, Safe Cycling Eastbourne


Bespoke is a free, non-political group, passionate about cycling. We want to make it easier and safer for everyone to get around Eastbourne by bicycle. Eastbourne is a gateway to the South Downs National Park, with miles of mountain-bike trails, but conditions for cycling in the town centre, along the seafront and around schools could (and should) be better.

If cycling could be as safe and easy as in many European towns, then more people would see the benefits of cycling. There would be less pollution and more parking spaces for those who need to use a car. Bespoke campaigns for a network of safe continuous well-signposted cycle routes.

Bespoke supports cycling for everybody who might want to use a bicycle to get to work, school, university, shops, the pub, or just out and about.
