This is one of the most beautiful, off road cycles in Western Europe! It has largely escaped the masses. The forest trails and small off roads seem to have been designed for cycling. The first half of your journey was designed for Benjamin Lee Guinness, born in 1798 and the grandson of Arthur of the black stuff, so he could visit his holiday home in Clonbur without ever going onto the public highway. Did he ever in his wildest dreams think it would be used to this day by cyclists from all over the world to marvel at what is a jewell in the crown of the Irish outdoor landscape for locals and strangers alike.

Cycling around the city takes all the fun out of this fine sport – too many cars getting in your way, the lack of proper scenery and car fumes clogging up your lungs. Your cycling soul will truly come alive however, when you take to the bike tracks in Connemara.
