Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device a bit intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. Although this is generally quite harmless you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests. If you prefer, it is possible to block some or all cookies, or even to delete cookies that have already been set; but you need to be aware that you might lose some functions of that website.

Cyclists & Walkers Welcome Scheme for Businesses

The South Downs National Park Authority is keen to support opportunities that benefit the local economy and invite you to join a Cyclists & Walkers Welcome initiative.

Many businesses across the South Downs already offer a warm welcome to cyclists and walkers. This welcome scheme will enable you to tap into the full potential of this market, attract more customers and add value to your business.

What’s in it for me?

Do you offer a warm welcome to cyclists and walkers in and around Lewes, Petersfield and West Sussex? This is how the scheme can benefit you:

  • You can directly target and attract local and visiting cyclists and walkers.
  • A free listing in the Cyclists & Walkers Welcome online directory, which includes a short business profile, on the South Downs National Park Authority website.
  • Use the free Cyclists & Walkers Welcome branded display stickers, website widgets and icons to promote the scheme on your own website and promotional materials.

What do I have to do?

All types of businesses are welcome to join the scheme. In return you must agree to:

  • Commit to a minimum set of welcome requirements.
  • Maintain accurate up-to-date information and services.
  • Promote your cyclist and walker friendly services on your own website and promotional materials.
