The Geography

Sussex by the Sea (The Arun District) is located on the Coastal Plain between Pagham to the west of Bognor Regis , Ferring to the east of Littlehampton and Arundel - all with the ever present South Downs to the North.

This makes it an ideal area for both recreational cycling and more adventurous mountain bike riding in the Downs. There are signposted cycle routes and to allow you to easily plan your journey we have created links to quickly take you to the most relevant information.
