Many would say that exploring on a bike is the most enjoyable and immersive way to experience a destination. There’s certainly nothing to block out the scent of the gorse, the sound of seabirds or the crash of the waves as you follow your way around Jersey’s coastal roads. With a network of 15 mph ‘Green Lanes’ through the island’s countryside and miles of bicycle-friendly routes, a cycle ride is the perfect way to explore our unique island.

Jersey's signposted cycle network.
Our many cycle routes are clearly marked and take in miles of rich countryside, coastal tracks and Green Lanes, where life slows down to a gentle 15mph.
