Can't recommend Ruth enough, so friendly and helpful via a good few emails to try find the right trip for us. Wanted an enjoyable scenic cycle but preferably not on a road, with a 12,13 And 14 yr old...Ruth suggested timoleague to courtmacsharry and it was perfect .... she left the bikes ready for us to collect (helmets/high vis/and repair kit too) then sent her an email to say when we'd finished and locked bikes back up for her to collect. Excellent service and would definitely use again. Thanks Ruth.

I rented a bike from Wild Atlantic Sports for my solo trip from Cork to Gougane Barra, Bantry, and back along the Wild Atlantic Way to Kinsale. This was a week long trip staying at “bed and breakfasts” in some amazingly scenic villages and coastal towns.
First thing to mention is the good and precise response from Ruth (the owner) concerning the renting of the bike.
Then I was very impressed with the excellent quality of the bike. This was not a tatty old mountain bike, it was a new and amazingly well balanced machine with good road tires.
I opted for the premium road bike which came with carrier, water proof pannier bags, repair kit, etc. Everything needed for a long road trip. I only brought my helmet.
Ruth also drops off and picks up the bikes in the region with her van. In my case I arrived in Cork and she delivered the bike to my B and B on the evening I arrived.
The costs of renting I think are amazingly reasonable especially considering the quality of the bike and the equipment provided.
Finally I want to mention that the vehicle drivers in this area were all very patient and respectful of bikes on the road. So in all it was a safe and scenic trip.
Thanks to Ruth. I will certainly recommend her company to others who would like to cycle in South West Ireland.

I booked this bike ride with Ruth as part of a fun girls weekend in Kinsale in June. Booking online with Ruth was so easy! We were a mixed bunch in terms of heights and ability but Ruth accommodated everyone. We met at the Old Head of Kinsale which was an amazing place to start. Ruth had all the bikes and gear ready and sorted based on height for all 5 of us. She is super friendly and immediately put everyone at ease and ready to have fun. Our bike ride took us along an easy scenic route on the Wild Atlantic Way. It was breathtaking! We made a stop off in Ballinspittle for tea! During the ride Ruth added in a hill challenge for some of us (optional) which myself and my sister did! I travelled from Toronto to meet my sister and friends for the weekend in Kinsale. The bike ride was something we added in as an activity for Saturday and I know I speak for the entire group when I say we had a fantastic time and would highly recommend it. Thanks so much Ruth! Will definitely see you again.

Our family of 5 did the guided bike tour with Ruth. I was able to book via email 2 days before the ride. Ruth met us with the bikes ready to go & led us on a beautiful tour of the coast & town of Ballinspittle. We were able to stop to refuel & get to learn more about the area. Ruth was very accommodating & we really enjoyed ourselves!
