Drumlin Trails Bike Hire is an outdoor cycle activity situated just 2.5 kilometres east from Emyvale Village off the N2 motorway on the approach road to Glaslough. Each trail offers a completely unique route to suit your requirements. Time, distance and degree of difficulty are supplied with every trail. Your chosen trail once selected can be viewed on your smartphone, which in turn can be mounted on the waterproof phone dock on the handlebars of your bike. Click on the google link to your trail and you have the equivalent to satellite navigation on a push bike.
In addition to regular bikes suitable for adults and children there are 10 ebikes available for adults only. They offer the cyclist an opportunity to travel longer and more challenging routes. These bikes require pedal action and are not self-propelled, as distinct from the moped and similar cycles. The technical description of these ebikes are pedalecs and are designed to satisfy all the normal regulations like a standard push bike. The use of the ebike offers the cyclist the assistance of a little more power with less physical effort, especially noticeable on the hills. They also afford the less experienced the chance to keep abreast of those more athletic and seasoned cyclists. Children’s bikes and accessories such as child carrier, panniers and trailers can all be booked if required. Helmets, hi-vis tops and safety equipment are all supplied as standard.
