Bike hire - Gorey area

    I will shortly be staying in Gorey for a week and I’m trying to hire a road bike for a day or two. Not fussy in terms of spec, just something I can get out on for a few mornings before the family is up. Google has provided a few misleading results, so I would appreciate if anyone knows of anywhere they could help me!

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I'm not aware of ANY road bike hire facility ANYwhere in Ireland. It's just not a thing. I'd also presume any enquiries into the "why" to very quickly lead you to an "insurance" brick wall explanation.

    Borrow a bike? Or does the challenge lie in the transport?

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,304 ✭✭✭Chartsengrafs

    @fat bloke, perhaps it’s a little niche, but it’s definitely a thing. I hired one without issue in Cork last year.

    Weepsie- thanks will check them out.

    mojomaker- bike isn’t the issue, just transport on this occasion!

    Welcome to borrow a towbar-mounted bike rack (if you have a towbar of course) Chartsengrafs. I think you're near me - or at least used to be.

    If that helps the transport issue?

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,304 ✭✭✭Chartsengrafs

    That’s incredibly generous of you, MojoMaker, thanks. My brother-in-law unexpectedly produced a rack from somewhere this evening and it fits our slightly awkward car. So I’m all sorted. Thanks all.
