The Sussex Ouse Valley Way follows the course of the River Ouse from its source near Lower Beeding in West Sussex to the sea at Seaford Bay in East Sussex.

The trail passes through diverse and beautiful scenery, including the High Weald and Sussex Downs Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There is a wealth of history and abundant wildlife.

Hi Judith, this is almost entirely a footpath. There are some sections that are a bridleway and therefore can be cycled. But the parts you can ride aren't consistent so you will need to keep taking diversions. The leaflet for the trail is here

I am very unclear whether you can cycle along the Sussex Ouse Valley Way. Are there obstructions such as stiles, kissing gates etc that make this difficult? I can't find any info about cycling apart from in the title.
