App-Bikes at Eastbourne Marina


Exploring Eastbourne Marina and its surrounding area by bike has never been easier. With hire bikes available to use from the bike racks at the Marina Reception and The Waterfront Cycle Rack (located in front of the boatyard), you can ride off and discover more of the local area on two wheels. Why not make your way along the seafront down towards Eastbourne Pier via Eastbourne Redoubt Fortress, or for a longer trip you can cycle over to Bexhill or Hastings!

Whilst the bikes are for public use, berth holders can enjoy a 50% negotiated discount on the annual subscription charge of £70. So when you pay £35 to subscribe you will enjoy 2 hours free cycling per day and pay just £2 per subsequent hour for hire. What’s more, you can hire up to 4 bikes on your annual account. These App-Bikes combine smart phone and smart lock technology and are available to pick up and deposit from several locations around Eastbourne and along the South Coast.

Dan Heckford, Marina Manager, said: “Having the App Bikes on site is great for those looking to keep fit or for those looking to cycle to the seafront or further afield on a beautiful summers day. There are lots of great places to visit around Eastbourne and Pevensey Bay, for example you can visit Pevensey Castle and learn about its rich heritage and it is only a 15-20 minute cycle from the Marina.”
