A ‘wheelie’ good idea

Hastings Borough Council’s Active Hastings team are staffing the seaside cycle hire hut this summer with adult bikes, balance bikes, adult electric bikes and a powered trike to hire.

They will also be hiring out deck chairs for visitor and residents.

Councillor Andy Batsford, Hastigs Borough Council’s lead member for leisure and sports development said: “What I love about this project is we are taking a traditional cycle and deckchair hire service that is providing all those things an exciting family seaside town should offer and then adding on top with our amazing sports and leisure team who will be encouraging local people to get active so come down and get cycling.”
