Jersey - Around The Rock

Jersey

Long - Hilly - New - Sightseeing - Trending

Although Jersey is only a small island (9 miles x 5 miles), this is a beautiful, longer ride offering some stunning and varied views of the coastline of Jersey. A regular and popular ride by Jersey cyclists is to go around the Island - known as ‘The Rock’ by the locals. A clockwise or anti-clockwise route is usually decided by the strength and direction of the wind. In this anti-clockwise ride, you start on the south coast in the capital of St Helier, travel east on fairly flat roads to Gorey and Mont Orgueil Castle, then ride to St Catherine in the north east corner before climbing to ride a rolling route along the cliffs of the north coast. Drop down to the west coast and ride along the flat Five Mile Road in St Ouen’s Bay towards Corbiere lighthouse. Finish by cycling through the delightful village of St Aubin and back along the south coast to St. Helier.
