It is untrue. There is a cycle route through the service tunnel then via Calshot Road Cromer Road to Car Park 1a, from where walkways lend to Terminals 1, 2 and 3. It is also possible to cycle to Terminals 4 and 5. It is not possible to take bikes on buses due to space restrictions on the vehicles.
