The Downhill Bike Ride is suitable for all ages. You don’t have to be an experienced cyclist. Many guests have not ridden a bike for decades.

All of the equipment is supplied. However, it is best if you wear sensible shoes and leave the flip-flops for the beach and the heels for the nights out.

You will be transported uphill by mini bus and then ride downhill all the way. You can cycle as much or as little as you like. The mini bus will always be there for you.
