Cycling in Mauritius

by Catherine

Mountain biking: Coastal roads are suited to cycling, especially on weekdays when the roads are clear. The scenery won’t disappoint you, and you’ll also get the feel for a diversified Mauritian culture when you cross roadside villages.

Electro Bike offers a 45km moderately difficult day trip packed with activity. Starting at Case Noyale on the Western coastal road, you will climb to Chamarel and drink in the view before visiting the coloured earth and descending towards Maconde. The tour ends on the beach at Le Morne, having taken you through some spectacular coastal terrains. At lunch time you’ll catch a breather walking through the Lavilleon forest, and you’ll eat a satisfying Mauritian lunch. Electro Bike’s website is:

Rentals: You can do your own thing by exploring the mountain bike trails in all parts of the country. Mauritius is a safe island, therefore you need not worry about your personal safety. There are forests, coastal roads and sugar cane trails for your cycling pleasure. You can rent bikes at

Road cycling: Try to avoid road cycling on your own, because roads are narrow and congested, and drivers undisciplined. Rather join a club or an organised cycle, and stick to country roads, making sure you wear all your safety gear. Get info from the Mauritian Cycling Federation’s Facebook page

Cycling Mauritius at leisure: The adventurous will enjoy cycling around Mauritius, discovering the island during the day, experiencing local hospitality at guesthouses or home stays in the evening. This is a bespoke event. Contact me for more information.
