This All About?
Listed to the left, are (or
soon will be) all
of the cycle racing and time trial circuits here in the nine mile wide
by five mile deep, island of Jersey. A 100 miles south of
the UK and 14 miles from France, our 45 square miles are made up
of many valleys formed in an island that slopes from the 100
metre cliffs of the north to the sea level flatlands of the
south. Jersey has 450 miles of roads, and most of them
seem to be Strava segments!
We've included a few
of the flamme
rouge training circuits and some of our
classic climbing and interval segments so locally you can take
up the challenge yourself. Click on a link to be taken to
a course description, a map location and all the Strava timings,
charts and rider information of your chosen route or segment.
Although some of the Strava
preview maps appear a little out, if you click on the segment
you'll be taken (in a new window) straight to Strava to see all
of the info you need, and probably loads more you don't. To
place the ride in context, why not go to satellite view and explore our lovely island?
Now you've planned your ride,
check the BBC weather forecast,
to see when would be a good time to go...
If you see us out on the road,
(we'll be the ones smiling and enjoying our rides) remember to wave
or say hello. Ignoring people isn't cool; doesn't matter how fast
See you on the road,
Be Good, Ride Hard,

Health & Safety
In this, sadly, more
litigious world in which we now find ourselves, there has to be
a Health and Safety narrative, to protect us all from those less
cerebrally gifted than ourselves. At all times you
are responsible for your own actions or inactions.
have a right to ride your bicycle on the roads, but with that
right comes obligations. Many of our segments are
reflections of intervals or routes we've used for the last
twenty-five years. Over the years, some have been modified
to remove junctions, pedestrian crossings, or sections where
building development has changed the risk profile.
is your obligation to ensure you do not put yourself, your
riding companions or any other road users, in your immediate
vicinity, in any danger whatsoever. There is always
tomorrow. Ride safe, ride sensibly and be responsible for
the outcome of your actions. But above all, have fun...
