WICKLOW WAY BY E-BIKE
Wicklow By E-Bike
For a long time, we have been pondering with the idea of giving you the option of exploring Wicklow on electric bikes and now we have realized our dream.
WHAT IS AN E-BIKE?
It’s a normal bike in most ways –
It looks like a bike, you pedal it like a bike, you steer it and stop it like a bike, but a small motor (with a few different settings) that does a lot of the work on the hills. It is battery “assisted” cycling in a nutshell!
Our cycling tour of the Wicklow Mountains takes in many charming villages and colourful towns.
Where possible, our tour takes you on quiet country roads that offer stunning views of the Wicklow Mountains and beyond to the Irish Sea.
Just a few of the places that you will visit along the way are, Wicklow Town, Tinahealy, Glendalough, Enniskerry and more.
We will give you two cycling options for most of your day’s adventure, supply you with a satellite navigation system so that you have no worries about getting lost. Your luggage will be transferred from each accommodation to the next, leaving you with only your daily provisions in your saddle bag. All designed to help you maximise your enjoyment of Wicklow as you travel along on your e-bike.
