Get on your bike
Cyclists won't be lost for things to do in Jersey; it is every two-wheeler's fantasy, with 15km per hour speed limits, priority for bikes, well-marked routes and even traffic-free lanes. Even the size of the island lends itself to bike exploration – the full circuit is around 65km, with many of the main attractions just a short pedal away from each other. Well-marked, self-guided routes take you through inland forests, through quaint villages and along cliff tops, while guided tours with locals reveal insider secrets about the island’s history, culture and environment.
The Cycle West initiative incorporates gorgeous routes in France, England and the Channel Islands, and the Jersey leg follows car-free ‘Green Lanes’ from St Helier to Corbiere, following disused railway lines and passing an iconic lighthouse. You can spend as long or as little as you want in the saddle – but remember, the more exercise you do, the better your excuse for tucking into the rich Jersey fare at the end of the day!
