“A wonderful way to spend a day seeing the sights in Leitrim!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013 via mobile

I hadn't cycled in twenty year's but was intrigued by the concept of electric bikes and took the plunge with my husband and two children. We opted for the sheemore trail and Eileen patiently explained the route, and even gave us maps which were very easy to follow,to guide us! Seamus and Eileen fitted us with helmets and explained how the bikes worked. After a nervous and shaky start on my behalf I soon gained confidence and was amazed at how easy it was to cycle with the battery assistance, I could keep up with everybody and enjoy the wonderful scenery and countryside that we so often take for granted rushing along in our cars! Well done to Seamus and Eileen for doing such a good job running electric bikes in Leitrim village and I can't wait for another opportunity to get back in the saddle!

“Great way to tour the Leitrim countryside”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Myself and my girlfriend rented two electric bikes for a day while visiting Leitrim and it was a fantastic way to see the area. We followed the Agrina trail, which was about 40km, and which allowed us to visit the Agrina Mining Experience, Kilronan Castle and a couple of ancient tombs. A significant amount of the route was uphill, but the electric bikes allowed us to power up the hills with ease. There would have been no way that we could have managed it on regular bikes.

The owner of Electric Bike Trails was extremely friendly and helpful; going through our route with us in detail before we set off, and giving us all the equipment and information we needed for a safe and enjoyable cycle.

Highly recommended!

“Enjoy County Leitrim !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Beautiful County that deserves to be known. We stayed in Lough Allen Hotel and we had it included in the package. It has been a great experience as the owner of Electric Bike gave us all the tips we needed to enjoy our trip. Everything is provided with the bikes (maps, bags, helmets, jackets) and they have a great choices of cycle tours. We really enjoyed it, it is actually very easy to cycle with this kind of bikes (too easy maybe) and he is even ready to pick you up in case of problem !
Everything provided is new, the service is perfect but when we heard the price for rental we thought we were lucky to have it in the package as we wouldn't have paid 30 euro each for cycling around...

“Great fun and excellent way to spend a day and see the countryside”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Had booked the 'electric unwind package' in lough allen hotel that included bike hire and must say had great fun with the bikes. I had the fear of not been on a bike for 20 years and not being very fit so went in with serious nerves.. the owner that sorted us out with bikes was a pure gent and convinced me I was going to achieve my aim of heading to Lough Key forest park. The bikes are amazingly easy and fun to use, you are provided with helmet, hi vis and panniers so you can carry what you need. The maps and directions were easy to follow and it was a really enjoyable day out. The roads are really quiet so don't worry about traffic. I cant recommend this enough and thanks to the 'helping hand' the bikes provide you going up hills you also think your really fit ;-)
