Getting here

The easy way to enjoy your cycling trip.

There are several routes to the Island by either car or passenger ferry. We feel travelling on either the Redjet Passenger Ferry (bagged bikes only) or Red Funnel Car Ferry (cyclists with or without cars) brings you right into the heart of Cowes and the start of your amazing trip.

Leaving the car at the quay side parking at Southampton couldn’t be easier and is on the doorstep of the ferry terminals. Be sure to pay using one of the methods available. A parking App is easy to download and used to control your parking session.

Bringing your car is easy and the crossing, whilst longer (approximately 50 minutes) offers a chance to relax, fuel up and take in the spectacular views across the Solent.
