Bed, Breakfast and Bike

Posted on July 27, 2010 @ 1:53 PM in Cycling

Northern Ireland has some fantastic places to stay, from which you can hire a bike and base yourself from for a scenic cycling experience in Northern Ireland....Here are a few options which i have thought of...

  • Castle Ward Estate, Co.Down - hire a bike at Clearsky Adventure Centre and cycle around the stunning estate or along the amazing long distance Strangford Lough Cycle Trail.
  • Dunhill Cottage, Hillsborough - this B&B offer bikes for hire, from here you can take the opportunity to cycle around Hillsborough Forest or join the Belfast to Ballyshannon cycle route at Lisburn.  
  • Share Centre, Fermanagh - whether you are undertaking a number of short cycling routes or riding along the Kingfisher Trail, the first long distance trail in Northern Ireland named for its abundance in wildlife, Share Holiday Village provides everything you need to make the most of your stay.

Great family cycling trails in Castle archdale, approximately 3 miles outside Irvinestown Fermanagh.

Visit the local bike shop Autopart Centre/Wray Cycles for help and advice regarding this.

Seeing these pictures in the article, I began to remember the days when we went cycling miles. Walking on unknown roads and the mountainous areas in rainy days.

I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on this topic. And he actually bought me lunch because I found it for him. So I should thank you for the free lunch I got.
