Pier to Pier Cycling Trail – Ramsgate to Deal
This beautifully designed introduction to some of the South East coast’s most striking architecture, history and nature begins in Ramsgate, the only Royal Harbour to be honoured by a visiting king, where you will leave from the East Pier and pick up the cycle-friendly Viking Coastal Trail to Pegwell Bay. From there you will follow National Cycle Network Route 1 until you arrive at the beautifully preserved medieval town of Sandwich. Then it’s onwards again, along the ancient highway (toll free for cyclists) meandering through the most magnificent sand dune habitat to your halfway point at Deal Pier. The route covers 20km and should take more or less 90 minutes to complete, depending of course on the speed you cycle! But remember that it isn’t a race, so take your foot off the pedal, and give yourself a moment to appreciate everything that makes this trail so exceptional.
This is a 12.9 miles / 20.8km one way (Ramsgate to Deal) and is on cycle paths the majority of the way.
