I bike for years and am very experienced. I did some races in triathlon on the road and leisurely I ride in woodland. I know the area very well and know the best corners and spaces to ride on around Cong and Joyce's Country, to explore areas of outstanding beauty the average biker wouldn't have a chance to see. I will take you on a magical ride in and around the forests of Cong and lakes of Joyce's Country.

Where you'll be

The places we visit and ride through are Clonbur Village where we start to ride around Mount Gable. Mount Gable brings us to Lough Corrib, one of the biggest lakes in Ireland. From Lough Corrib we continue all the way to Cong, a famous Irish village, well-known from the movie "The Quiet Man" starring John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara and also renowned for Ashford Castle. From Cong we ride through Cong forest to end up in Clonbur village.

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be canceled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 6 guests ages 18 and up can attend. It's important to have a good physical condition since the ride is quite adventurous with some short but steep hills and off-road rides in the forest. It's also advisable to bring rain gear with you as Ireland…

More tips

I also want to mention that the price per person is 55€ but for bookings for more than 2 people it's 40€ per person starting from the 3rd person.
