What you'll do

We will meet up at the Galway's Land National Park, where I will be waiting with the bikes and equipment for your arrival around 7.30am if you want to do a morning ride or around 2.00pm if you prefer to ride in the afternoon.

After we conduct our safety briefing, we will hop on the (high end) mountain bikes that I will be providing and ride along the very scenic Galway's Land National Park road and head to our trail-head that is surrounded by lush green tea bushes, amazing panoramic vistas and rewarding gravel trails.

I will ride with you through the entire trail explaining the points of interests, local fauna and flora and details about the lifestyle and culture of villagers who live along the trail. Half way though, we will stop at a renowned tea factory to get a tour and learn how world famous Ceylon tea is made and enjoy an some freshly brewed tea. Our last stop on this would be a beautiful waterfall after which we will head back to our original starting point to ed off the day.
Other things to note
This includes physical exercise that most people who lead a generally active lifestyle would enjoy. The difficulty of the trail is always customized to suit your comfort levels. Weather here is typically cold & windy. But you’ll sweat a lot. Depending on the season there could be some rain too.
