General fitness required previous bike experience and a good sense of balance.
Our bikes are super easy to ride, very comfortable, safe & fun. They ride just like a normal bike but with a little help up the hills or if it's windy from the motor. They are very easy to step in and out of, have lights front & rear for your safety. We use Rad Power Runner + eBikes for our experiences which are exclusive to Bike & Hike Adventures.
eBike - 23km (feels like about 10k's on our super Electric Bikes)
Walk - 3.5km
Join us on our Eco-Friendly eBike & walking experience to discover the Copper Coast. This spectacular volcanic coastline on Ireland's southern edge is a designated UNESCO GeoPark(one of only 161 in the world). The Copper Coast's landscape is shaped over hundreds of millions of years, this area of natural beauty has been sculpted by ancient ice and Atlantic waves, the Copper Coast is home to a landscape filled with spectacular views & experiences.
Our eBikes will make it easy to bike around the up & down the coastal route of the Copper Coast, we will show you all the places only the locals know. We will discover this amazing coastline and tell its story. Our walk takes us to the Anne Valley trail in Dunhill. Our walk winds through a protected wildlife area of forest and marshland next to the river Anne. If you are lucky you may see some of the many protected wildlife species such as the heron, kingfisher, or otter and an amazing range of other fauna and flora. A most awe-inspiring sight along the walk is the view of Dunhill Castle.
If we hear of anything interesting happening in the area on the day of your experience we may change the route slightly to show you.
Our eBike experiences are at a very leisurely pace and always fun!
