Midland Cycling Tours
Midland Cycling Tours - An undiscovered country of quiet roads
Our guided spins through quiet country roads, greenways, lakes, hills, and bogs can be as easy or challenging as our cyclists wish! Depending on the route, we may take you 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.
You’ll always be guaranteed to breathe fresh air, enjoy the scenic environment, and hear a yarn or two about our colourful local history as you go. And we’ll ensure your comfort and safety with stops for refreshment or comfort in some of our fine local cafes and pubs on route. Delicious coffee, lunch, or afternoon tea will be on the agenda for every spin.
Located in the centre of Ireland, only 50km from Dublin.
