Mountain Biking

While we are better known for fun activities involving 4 legged friendly giants and colourful caravans, there is another great activity on our doorstep of the 2 wheeled variety which can provide hours of outdoor fun and is suitable to all levels of ability.

Whether you prefer a challenge in the hills on Mountain Bike Trails or a leisurely cycle along quiet forest paths, Wicklow has it all just a stone’s throw from our farm at Cronybyrne.

For the adventurous, there is a great selection of Mountain Bike Tracks including Ballinastoe MTB Trail and Carrick Mountain which is just 5 minutes from our base.

There is huge excitement here as Carrick has been chosen to host the second round of the Enduro World Series mountain bike race titled the Chain Reaction Cycles Emerald Enduro on the weekend of the 23rd and 24th of May 2015. The world’s top riders will line out for a challenging day of racing over technical terrain through some of the most beautiful and unspoilt countryside in Wicklow.

For those who would like to try their hand at these tracks or are looking to improve their skills, offer lessons with highly experienced tutors and quality bike rental. Guided cycling tours are also available and have varying levels of difficulty.

If instead you would prefer to amble along and take in the view at a slightly slower pace, Wicklow has plenty to offer. You can choose from coastal routes to trails on the shores of the Blessington lakes in West Wicklow or many of the rural lanes and pathways around our farm.
