Electric Bike Tour Along The Historic Waterways Of Dublin

Electric Bike Tour Along The Historic Waterways Of Dublin

This is the first and only bike tour that passes through both the city centre and outskirts of Dublin, availing of many little known cycleways through parkland and along rivers and canals. With the e-bike, you can choose how much or how little energy you need to expend, according to your own fitness or energy levels. This is a unique way to see Dublin, while barely realising you are in the city, and all the while getting the benefit of fresh air and exercise without wearing yourself out…..unless you want to. The stories you will hear are more often little known than common, and offer fascinating glimpses into the murky past!
