On your bike!

You may have been inspired by the Tour De France, want to ride the tortuous cobbles of the Belgian classics or just want to travel around small islands with the wind in your hair. If you do, you’ll need to take your bike. Planning cycling holidays by ferry couldn’t be easier and ferry travel is the perfect way to holiday with your bike.

Cycling holidays have been become massively popular in recent years and ferries are the ideal way to get your bike there (because we all know that you can’t hire any old bike when you get there, it’s not the same!) Taking your bike across the Channel could not be easier. On many ferries, you can simply walk it onboard through the car entrance, lock it to the points provided, then relax whilst enjoying a daytime or overnight crossing. Unlike planes, there is no need to dismantle the bike to box it up, or to wonder whether it will arrive from the luggage hold in one piece, if at all.

Ferries are so bike friendly that they even suggest cycling routes and itineraries you can follow when you disembark. What’s not to love!
