Cycling in Guernsey has got to be one of the best ways to explore this magnificent island. Lying within the Channel Islands group off the coast of northern France, you can explore its craggy coastline, Victorian forts, long beaches and undulating pastoral countryside. Fairly low-lying, you can pedal for considerable distances throughout the island, stopping off at cafes and discovering pretty views with ease.
Some of the best cycle routes on Guernsey swing by one or two of the island’s historic defences. Lying between France and England, it’s easy to understand why this island and its neighbours might need a castle every few miles and they make for intriguing objectives, dating over a wide range of periods.
White sand beaches, jagged coastlines, historic towers, bustling harbours and peaceful country lanes mean that no mile is ever the same on Guernsey. No matter where you ride though, you’re never far from a cafe or village shop, and have access to a delicious range of food including plenty of French cuisine.
