On your bike and get into gear for a memorable experience at one of our 13 dedicated cycling sites around Ireland.

Whether you fancy a gentle, leisurely spin with the kids, or an adrenaline-pumping challenge in the hills, you can dip into our 300 kilometre-long, off-road cycle trail network to find something that suits you.

Our family and leisure cycling trails are perfectly suited to children, who will love the idea of pedalling with the folks. Mam or Dad can bring tag-a-longs or a kiddie trailer to make it easier for the small people. These trails are completely traffic-free, so the ideal place to teach kids to cycle and grow their confidence on a bike.
For the more adventurous and ambitious cyclist, we have a number of middle and longer distance trails, best used with a hybrid bike with slightly wider tyres than road bikes.

But please be aware that we only allow non-powered or power-assisted bikes on our lands, i.e. the bike must be capable of being ridden when powered off. All-electric bikes that require no pedalling and all derivations of them are not allowed on Coillte lands.

But for a full-on adrenaline rush, try out our mountain bike trails bringing you up over rugged terrain, along rocky trails and swoop down the other side. And your reward? Fresh air, exercise and incredible landscapes! Our trails at Ticknock, Ballinastoe and Ballyhoura have bike hire where the experts will fit you out with the right set of wheels to get you on your way.

Explore our BikeTrails on our Recreation Map and find a place you will love to go Cycling, or indulge in some other activity.

Watch out for “Cyclists Welcome” signs at our designated cycling sites. Enjoy the spin!
