Mountain Biking

Post by FionaLucy » Thu Apr 27, 2017 6:18 pm

It's that time of year again folks and time for our annual day out mountain biking!

Originally it was scheduled for Sat 6th May but that has to be changed now to Saturday 13th May.
Same time 1.30pm-6pm at Bikepark Ireland in Tipperary http://www.bikeparkireland.ie
The half day package is €60 which includes:
Full suspension trail bike
Full face helmet, elbow & knee pads
Park entry (use of trails & facilities)
Unlimited uplifts in army truck to top of trails (up to 12 uplifts)
BBQ Burger & salads

The bike hire fleet are top quality full suspension trail bikes and are ideal for cruising down their trails. If you’re not use to riding a full suspension bike, you’re in for a real treat! There are trails for all levels & abilities so don't be shy, everyone is very welcome.

The uplift service is an ex-army truck with 30 bus seats & bike trailer which will transport you and bike safely, via purpose-built road, to the top of the trails each time. From there you choose which trail you want to ride down and when you return to the pickup point at the bottom, the truck will take you back up to the top of the trails again, giving you lots of biking time. This is the selling point for me anyway!

So let me know below if you like to join in. Everyone is very welcome and all abilities are catered for. The focus here is on having fun and enjoyment.

€30 Gerry. Anyone with their own gear just pays for the use of the park and the uplifts. I believe they have new shower and changing facilities there now actually. Not that we're not all used to changing out in the open! :lol:

Great to have you on board Jimmy and Ed.

So just to update....we need a minimum of 10 people for the trampolining so we'll have to cancel it on this occasion. The mountain biking however, is DEFINITELY going ahead so keep signing up. The more the merrier. Looking forward to a great day!
