Terms & Conditions for Cycling Tours

Accommodation: Is on a twin sharing basis in a mixture of family run Hotels and guest houses with breakfasts included. On booking we need to know whether sharing will be on a twin (two beds) or double (one bed) basis. Due to the isolated nature of several of the places we stay in, we cannot guarantee the availability of single room accommodation. For people coming on their own we will twin share them with another single person on the tour. In exceptional cases we may be able to provide one single room at a €215 supplement for the week or €250 for self guided tours. This is strictly on a request basis only. (the supplement for the Glens of Antrim tour is £165.00)

Distances: The average cycling distance is an easy 30m (45km) with longer routes being available each day. The safaris are suitable for adults of all ages, but a certain level of fitness is required and taking in a few practice rides is strongly recommended. The tours are not suited for children under 13 years of age. The Ring of Kerry, the Highlands of Donegal and the Antrim tours have more hills than the other routes and are more suited to the keener cyclist.

Meals: The guide will recommend a lunch stop each day where a snack lunch will cost between €8 and €12. A group evening meal is also organised by the guide each night which costs between €20 and €30.

Booking and payment: A non-refundable deposit of €130 is required at time of booking with the balance due 1 month prior to departure. Cancellations made within 30 days of departure will be charged in full.

Clients may take their own bike on a tour, there is a reduction of €20.00 in this case, but they are responsible for the condition of the bike.

Minimum Group Size: We may have to cancel a tour date due to minimum numbers being reached.

In the unlikely event of this happening we will be able to offer you another group tour running that week, or offer the original tour on a self led basis. Or naturally we would fully refund the deposit if we had to cancel the tour. We are not responsible for any ancilliary costs.

Complaints: In the, hopefully unlikely, event of there being a complaint, we advise you to direct any complaints to the tour guide on your tour, in order to give us a chance to rectify the problem. Complaints in writing must be sent within one month of when the tour has finished.

Starting times: Each of the tours start with a meeting of the group at 6.30pm on the Saturday evening in a central hotel close to the local train and bus station. This is only a meeting point, typically the group will be staying in nearby guesthouses. The guide is able to return to the meeting place at 9.30pm again that evening and the following morning for those arriving late. After an introductory talk the guide will organise an evening meal and direct clients to their first nights accommodation in the chosen bed & breakfast.
