Cycleway Opens In Honour Of Dani King
Signs have gone up naming the cycle route in the village of Hamble-le-Rice as the "Dani King Cycleway" in honour of local Olympic gold medallist Dani King.
Fifteen signs have been placed along the safe cycling route that runs along Hamble Lane from near to the junction with Portsmouth Road in Bursledon to its junction with Copse Lane near to Hamble-le-Rice village.
The cycle route passes Dani's old primary school and Hamble Community Sports College where she started her cycling career and runs close to her parents' home.
"It is an honour to have a cycle path named after me. When people ride along it I hope it will remind them of the legacy of the Olympics and inspire them to keep fit and enjoy sport".
Eastleigh Borough Council has announced its intention to also award Freedom of the Borough to its two Olympic and Paralympic gold medallists Dani King and David Smith.
The decision to award the highest honour that the borough can bestow is set to be agreed at a Full Council meeting in December. It's in recognition of their dedication and services to their sport.
