The Hoe is well presented, clean and tidy. There were motorbikes and loads of people. However I went to the sea front with a book and enjoyed the sun, waves and relaxation!

What a lovely thing to do, and yes the Hoe is well lighted and very safe for cycling as there are various traffic calming measures preventing the lunatics from spoiling your time there. Enjoy!
