Seychelles: Can I use a bicycle to move around Mahe?

Hi! I read somewhere that I cant rent a scooter on the island. So I was wondering if I could use a bicycle to move around from east to west coast or are the roads not bicycle friendly?

What are some of the other and cheaper means of transportation that I should consider?

Thanks!

You could use the bus, they have stops all across the island, and costs 5 rupees per trip

Hi Faseha, thanks for the info!

Do you know if I can take the bus from Mahe airport to the Baie Lizare area?

Hi

I'm not too sure whether this would be possible, I assume it would be though. I could not find the bus schedule online but I've given a link to their site below. If you drop them an email I'm sure they'd be able to provide you with that information

The roads on the island are really narrow and the buses hurtle like crazy on them. I wouldn't recommend uses a bicycle.its also a steep trip over the mountain to get to beau Vallon side. I would recommend using the bus as the safer of the two options. They are very regular and cheap

Bicycles are not recommended on Mahe. Scooters can not be rented because the government does not allow rental due to very dangerous narrow roads.

Mikiduta is right, cycling is dangerous on MAHE ..... Being in a car is bad enough!

Windey roads, deep water gulleys either side, crazy drivers and big fast busses....

Go to La digue or even Praslin if you want to cycle....
