Hayling Island is a very popular spot not only because of the outstanding riding conditions but because of its quick accessability. It is only 5 minutes from the A27 between Southampton and Brighton and the same
distance from the A3, a straight short drive from London. It is because of this we get a lot of riders from around the area including many from London.
There are also frequent buses and trains into the area, so please check with each service for more details.
