Guernsey is perfect for getting about on two wheels because of its size, plus there is a growing network of cycle lanes and paths suitable for bikes. Indeed the Ruettes Tranquilles - designated lanes across the Island with a recommended speed limit of 15 mph – make cycling a pleasure.
Ruettes Tranquilles are open to all traffic but give priority to walkers, cyclists and horse-riders and together they form a growing network across the parishes of Vale, Castel, Forest, St Andrews, St Martins, St Sampsons and St Saviours. All Ruettes Tranquilles are signposted.
In addition to the Ruettes Tranquilles, Visit Guernsey has published a leaflet for cyclists detailing 11 designated trails beyond the Ruettes Tranquilles. This handy leaflet can be picked up from the Guernsey Information Centre or downloaded here.
If you are lucky enough to visit Sark you will find that the island is car free and, as a result, travelling by bike is practically compulsory. It is not compulsory to wear a helmet on Guernsey or Sark, however, it is highly recommended!
Further details of Guernsey’s cycle routes and the various locations of cycle stands can be found of the States of Guernsey website.
