Good news for cyclists! Isles of Scilly Travel allows you to bring your bike along, ensuring you can hit the ground riding as soon as you arrive.

On Scillonian III, bikes can be transported for a fee. Make sure to book in advance to secure space.

With Skybus, due to the size of the aircraft, we cannot accommodate bikes on flights.

But don’t worry—bike hire options are available on the islands, or you can book your bike to travel unaccompanied on Scillonian III.
