Cycling to Keyhaven

I took up cycling as a hobby and I’ve been cycling nearly every day – weather allowing.

Today was not different. It was a lovely afternoon and since I had a few errands to run, why not cycle with a purpose? So, off I went. First into town which is roughly a 25-minute ride.

After doing what I had to do in town, I popped in to see a friend and have a nice cuppa.

After a little rest it was time to have fun and head to Keyhaven in Milford on sea. Keyhaven is 2,5 miles from Lymington. It’s a lovely ride towards the water (downhill wooohooo!).

Down Lower Pennington Lane you’ll reach a cycle path all the way to Keyhaven (see photos below).


This is where I usually stop for a quick snack


You can see the cattle and the Isle of Wight at the back


At the end of this path, on the left, there are boats moored. That’s when you know you’re in Keyhaven 😉


why not take a selfie?

As soon as you get to Keyhaven you’ll see The Gun Inn which is a very nice pit stop for a pint.

My favourite route from there is via Lymore Lane which goes all the way to Everton. It’s very rural but with a bit of sea air which is the best of both worlds in my opinion.

End of my route: 12 miles.

What a great way to welcome the weekend! TGIF!
