Midland Cycling Tours offer guided spins through quiet country roads, greenways, lakes, hills and bogs. It can be as easy or as challenging as cyclists wish. Depending on the route, the guide may take the off-road from Mullingar to Athlone via the “Old Rail Trail” and the Royal Canal Greenway. Serious cyclists, who have never sampled the Midlands, might be surprised by some of the more challenging routes on offer.
Cyclists will breathe fresh air, enjoy the scenic environment and hear about the colourful local history. Midland Cycling Tours will ensure comfort and safety, with stops for refreshment in some of the local cafes and pubs on route. Delicious coffee, lunch or afternoon tea will be on the agenda for every spin.
