The Only Way to Go: Ebikes
Highly recommend ebikes…the way to go! Up-hill, down dale, not a problem! With a push bike, one is always thinking of turning around, heading for home: will it be too hilly, will it be windy? Not a bother with ebikes, all very pleasant and you can probably travel twice the distance v. a push bike. Very easy to use.- Frank D
Excellent way to see the beauty of Kinsale and the surrounding areas. Ruth was very professional and the bikes are in great condition. Would highly recommend to everyone who wants to venture out of the town of Kinsale and see some of the amazing scenery this area has on its doorstep.- Marg C
Safe scenic easy to book.its great to get off the bus or out of the car and do something. Cycling country roads alongside the beach, cliffs, forest, wildflowers, pretty villages. I loved it! Ruth the host knows how to make you welcome while keeping it safe! Creating a memory of Ireland that I cherish. The gear was of good standard. E-bike was new and surprisingly simple to ride.- Sue S
We rent the bikes for 10 days to cycle the southwest coast of Ireland, starting in Killarney and going south to Kinsale.
Ruth provides really good bikes – I used every gear on that bike thoroughly! The bikes are quite new, the brakes work nicely, the saddle is comfy and the lights work fine as well.
She has also nice bags for the back of the bike, hands you a helmet, a security west, a bike lock, bike tools, a spare tube, a water bottle and even a map and cycling suggestions!
