Bikes and Equipment

It may sound obvious, but in order to enjoy a bike tour, you will need a good bicycle!  We give you a choice of a high quality hybrid or electric bike.

Hybrid Bikes

Ireland by bike Kellys Axis

Kellys Axis

The bicycle we use on our tours is the Kellys Axis (men’s frame) and Kellys Omega (women’s frame), or an equivalent model. These high quality 24 speed hybrid models combine the best features of road and mountain bikes, making them the perfect choice for touring the type of terrain in North West Ireland.

 

Electric Bikes

Electric bike tours Ireland. Kalkhoff agattu impulse

Kalkhoff agattu

We use the high quality Kalkhoff Agattu Impulse.  This bike combines an excellent battery life lasting up to 180 km with the comfort and versatility of an all terrain bike.  Perfect for bike touring in the hilly terrain of North West Ireland.

 

Equipment

As well as the bicycle the following are also provided.Bike touring equipment

  • Helmet
  • Front carrier bag with map holder
  • Mudguards
  • Rear luggage carrier
  • Lock
  • Puncture repair kit
  • Pump
  • Spare inner tube

We do not normally provide rear pannier bags as these tend to slow the bicycles down. Our daily luggage transfers should mean that the front carrier bag easily holds day to day needs. However if you require rear panniers we can provide them at no extra cost.

If you would like to use your own pedals and saddle we will be more than happy to fit these to our bikes. We are also quite happy for you to use your own helmet if you would prefer.
