Probably! If you’re even asking the question. Or at least you will be able to get fit enough with a little practise. See our blog post on this very subject - https://blog.wildatlanticcycling.com/2020/12/preparing-for-your-cycling-adventure.html
No. We cater for all levels of riding style.
Most ride the Ireland End-to-End on good quality road bikes.
We suggest a minimum of 25mm.
All routes are on roads with tarmac. Varying in quality from course tarmac with occasional potholes, to smooth and well maintained. A small number of sections have grass up the middle (adds to the fun!).
Our groups are usually between 12 and 24 people, consisting of solo cyclists, pairs, small groups of friends and club groups.
By all means. Many people do. You are free to make new friends and riding buddies, or cycle solo if you wish. We support you whatever!
We highly recommend that you always wear a helmet for your own safety. In some countries, wearing of helmets is a legal requirement.
We strongly encourage people to bring their own bikes. However, in some cases, depending on the tour we may be able to provide bike hire. Please contact us to discuss your options.
Yes. Please ensure that you have reviewed the distance and climbing involved in your tour and feel confident that your battery combined with your legs will be able to complete the challenge.
Lots of places! We regularly get cyclists from England, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, USA, New Zealand, Australia, Netherlands, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales as well as the Republic of Ireland.
We send turn-by-turn electronic route files in advance (GPX format). You can upload these to your bike GPS. Alternatively you can rent a bike GPS from us with the routes pre-loaded. We will fit these to your bike. Each morning we will gather together for a briefing and you will receive your own copy of the day's route profile. Route Profiles include high level map, climbing profile and information on coffee and lunch stops.
Cyclists of all ages enjoy our tours. Our youngest customer was 17 and our oldest 81!
And both were on the same Ireland end to end tour in Autumn 2022 :)
Yes! Some folk take part in this wonderful challenge in support of a cause or charity. We have some information on our Causes page and also a blog from Brian about his efforts in supporting a charity called Sands. Let us know and we will support in whatever way we can.
