How often do you do the DOWNHILL BIKE RIDE?
Every weekday Monday to Friday, all year round.
At peak holiday times we also go on Saturdays.
Do I have to be an experienced cyclist?
Definitely not! Many of our guests haven't ridden a bike for decades.
Is there an age limit?
Again, definitely not! Our oldest rider to date was 90 .... with his 68 year old son!
Normally a minimum of about 8 years old, providing they are at least 4'-0" tall.
We can cater for younger children ... maximum weight is 22 kilos or 3.5 stones
who ride free of charge in a special seat attached to an adult's bike.
How long does the trip last?
We pick you up at your accommodation about 9.00 am. arriving back at 3.30 pm.
What do I need to bring?
"Sensible" shoes ... not flip-flops or high heels. We provide safety helmets.
Any personal belongings can safely be left in the minibus.
Are there any stops?
We stop frequently to ensure everyone is comfortable and to explain
places of interest on the next section of the ride.
So you'll have plenty of opportunities to take photographs.
Bring your own packed lunch or enjoy a delicious soup/stew at the Cannibals
Restaurant. We carry fresh spring-water available at any time during the bike ride.
What if I don't want to do all the ride?
You cycle as much or as little as suits you.
You can get back into the support minibus any time you want.
What is the cost of the DOWNHILL BIKE RIDE?
Adults from 33 euros. Children under 12, from 29 euros.
Special discounts are available. Please for details.
