We meet our guests and start this tour mid-morning at the Ballinastoe trail head. Free car parking is available. The only information we require from you in advance is your height information to ensure that are provided with the correct size fatbike. Once we have you comfortable on your fatbike we set-off and bring you along various sections of groomed single track (bike paths) to some amazing view points that include the Vartry Lakes and Wicklow coastline, Lough Tay (Guinness Lake). The uphill climbs can be a bit daunting at first but the views and the trails are well worth the effort. We will ask you to sign a waiver/disclaimer form prior to starting your tour with us. We provide you with a fatbike, a helmet and drinking water. Please wear light layers of clothing and good comfortable running/walking shoes. Padded cycling shorts and cycling gloves aren't essentials but are worth bringing along if you have them. An energy snack, your phone/camera (bragging rights) and your sense of adventure are highly recommended.
