Mourne Mountain Biking packages are based on transfers from the groups accommodation in Carlingford to Rostrevor and back. The group will be fully fitted with Mountain Bikes, helmets, gloves. They drop (bus) the group at a higher point on the trails so that the session will be aided by gravity with no long bike climb required. They found that long climbs with stag / large groups is a bad idea!
From the higher point their guide/s will do a off-road intro session, covering all the basic core-skills involved in Mountain Biking and then its onto the trails to put those new skills into action.
The trails run back down Kilbroney Valley into Rostrevor and end at Kilbroney park. They then lead the group down to our Bike Hire and Coaching Centre in Rostrevor village (snacks maybe an option here) The group is then picked up from here and transferred back to Carlingford. Mourne Bikes works as Cycling Ireland Trail Cycle Leaders (MBLA), They work on a ratio 8:1 coach to rider. They are fully insured and are officially permitted guides on the Rostrevor Trails.
