Ask most people if there’s anything they know about Sark, and the one thing likely to come up is the island’s famed lack of cars. Perhaps the only region in the world that forbids the use of the automobile in the 21st Century, the edict prohibiting cars, far from being restrictive, has in fact created many wonderful opportunities for relaxed sightseeing and exploration on the island.
Covering only approximately 3 miles by 1.5 miles, Sark may as well have been created with cycling in mind.
With over 9 miles of rideable tracks and breathtaking views of the other Channel isles as well as the mainland of France, the Sark landmass is ideal for cyclists of all ages and abilities to take in the entire island at a relaxed pace.
We are pleased to recommend two cycle hire companies, both with longstanding traditions and excellent levels of service.
