Bikes at Horam on the Cuckoo Trail
The Cuckoo Trail runs along a dis-used railway line between Heathfield just south of Tunbridge Wells and Polegate just to the north of Eastbourne on the South coast. This off-road walking and cycle route is a gem of the Southeast and attracts around 250,000 people a year exploring the lovely countryside between the towns that sit along trail. Mainly flat and almost entirely off-road, this is an ideal route to explore with the family. There are picnic benches to be found along the route as well plenty of shops and cafes in Heathfield, Horam, Hailsham and Polegate.
Please see our Horam webpage for more details.
New: Monthly subscription
Ideal if you plan to be a frequent user of one of our bikes! For £25 a month you can hire one bike at a time for up to 2 x 1 hour bike rides a day as part of the monthly fee. Perhaps you are looking to get fit for the summer, or you want to use a bike to hop between the Countrybike posts at Heathfield, Horam, Hailsham or Polegate (near the station) on the Cuckoo Trail. If so, then the plan could be ideal for you.
- You are permitted to hire the bikes twice a day for up to one hour. Additional time is then charged at £2.50 per 30 minutes.
- You must return the bike to the location you hired it from although once additional venues are up and running on the Cuckoo trail you will be permitted to end your ride at any of the designated Countrybike posts along the route (planned to be located at Heathfield, Horam, Hailsham and Polegate) as long as you can safely secure the bike to a free bike post.
- Please note due to limitations of the App, you cannot hire multiple bikes simultaneously if signed up to this plan. If signed up and you want to hire multiple bikes, then you must register another email address and sign-up to the Pay as You go plan.
