Cycling

Are you inspired to cycle on the continent?

Perhaps it's the thought of enjoying the delicious French cuisine whilst becoming fitter and leaner. Maybe it's the dream of empty roads through sleepy, unspoilt villages on a short 5 day ride in Western France or on a macho long distance leg burner in the Picos de Europa mountain ranges in Northern Spain.

We would love you to take your bike, a truly green way to travel. Brittany Ferries and cycling - the perfect combination.

To help you on your way, we have devised a selection of cycle routes through Brittany, Normandy and Northern Spain. You can achieve each within 5 days, combine them, or use as a base for an even longer experience.

Taking your bike across the Channel could not be easier. 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.

Whilst we make every effort to embark cyclists before cars, this is not always possible. Cyclists who arrive at the quayside after loading has started are likely to be boarded last for reasons of safety.
