Cycling in Jersey

visitor guide


Jersey is a cyclist’s paradise. A perfect mild climate and varied terrain makes blazing a trail around the island a pure joy. Steep climbs and exhilarating drops that work their way through wooded valleys open out to smooth strips of cycle-friendly highways set against the breathtaking backdrop of our windswept coast. Whether you ride for pleasure, convenience or fitness, Jersey is a playground for riders of all levels. Add to this our reduced speed limits and stunning scenery and discover an island that is made for two wheels. Saddle up and enjoy the ride.


Why Cycle In Jersey?

We may be small, but we pack many diverse, beautiful and challenging cycle routes into our nine miles by five. Warm up with gentle spins along sandy seascapes or tackle a pulse-raising hill climb to Jersey’s north coast - we have tracks for all fitness levels.  Dave, the cycling cabbie, from Danbury in Essex, drives London black cabs all day. He loves London, but finds it very claustrophobic – especially when he’s trapped in the car with a passenger getting stressed, putting pressure on him. He’s always got his eye on the clock. Discover why Dave believes Jersey's cycling experience is so unique.
