Salterns Way is a cycle route from the centre of Chichester to the sand dunes of East Head. The route follows rural roads and cycle paths through the countryside. It has been funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and is managed by Chichester Harbour Conservancy. The distance of just over 18 kilometres is one way so to include the return to Chichester the total is 23 miles or 37 kilometres.

This is a route I have tried several times and while the offroad sections are scenic and well surfaced, access to them is anything but. This is a particular problem for the section on Apauldram Lane. The offroad section is the greater part but the first and last sections are on the lane, which is narrow, twisted and a notorious ratrun. This I find is a common problem in the Chichester area which offers many attractive cycling routes but unfortunately almost without exception they are interpersed with sections where you take your life in your hands.
