In Ireland, the last few years have seen a massive upsurge in cycling. There are many benefits to using the cycling trails in Ireland. Ireland is increasingly becoming one of Europe’s top cycling destinations. Irish tourist providers now offer a whole host of cycling holiday packages to international guests, helping them to enjoy cycling trails in Ireland. So what makes cycling trails in Ireland so special? Ireland’s moderate year round climate ensures that no matter what time of year it is, you can always use the roads and trails for cycling. However with so many options, it can prove challenging to narrow down which cycling trail in Ireland is the right route for you. The people at The Ocean Sands Hotel have sent us the infographic below that reveals some of the best cycle routes throughout Ireland.
The Ronde van Vlaanderen, or Tour of Flanders, is Flander’s biggest cycling classic. And don’t think the event is confined to hardcore cyclists – there is also a huge festival alongside the course, as well as an amateur official Cyclosportive that take place a day before.
The Lumix DMC-TS5 is the perfect point and shoot pocket camera for a cyclist. I couldn’t think of a better camera for bike tours. At 7.5 oz, you are not even going to notice it in your baggage. If your tour includes beaches, snorkeling or scuba diving, just grab the Lumix DMC-TS5 out of your pannier and take it into the water with you. No need to fiddle around with a case!
