We took advantage of great offer for Paddy’s Day and cycled to Malin Head getting a pint in the Seaview Tavern and a lift home as reward for our efforts.
It was quite windy and we are not experienced cyclists so was a bit nervous starting off. The gear is great, we were well kitted out and the hybrid bikes are sturdy enough for the inexperienced and have enough range in the gears to get you up and down the hills pretty easily. Maps and vouchers provided are excellent.
The scenery in Inishowen is some of the best in the country. I’ve visited many times, but seeing it by bike was amazing. You notice things you’d never see zooming past in the car, and with all the new lambs around, it was brilliant. Also I’d never have gone
to the Seaview Tavern without the pint incentive, and it’s a lovely spot with great food.
I would thoroughly recommend, even if you’re not a cyclist. You can take it your own pace, so you don’t need any Lance Armstrong style supplements to get up the hills, just walk a bit if you find it tiring 🙂
The Cycle Inishowen team are so helpful, as soon as the trip was over I’m wondering when I can go back and discover more of Donegal by bike.
