Big Fat Beach Safari II

Deciding to run the Big Fat Beach Safari II during the summer wasn’t a difficult decision for us in all fairness, the first edition back in February could’ve frozen the balls off a brass monkey, so quite a few people were up for hitting this route in the warm summer weather.  One of the features of this event was a test ride on one of the new fangled eFatbikes kindly provided by Greenaer the Haibike distributors for Ireland, there it is right there in the centre of the below picture:

The weather was brilliant, the company excellent (as always) and the beach sublime.   Our tour kicked off at Wicklow Sailing Club which is located to the viking era Black Castle and then took us past Wicklow’s very own waterborne legend – Sammy the Seal followed by a short blast along the Murrough estuary before an even shorter blast on the beach front outdoor BMX pump track.

The trip from Wicklow Town up to Greystones along with beach with the wind in your favour will take even the slothiest of slothy couch potatoes less than 3 hours.  This tour is so relaxed that it barely feels like exercise.  The only section of the cycle that might cause a little trepidation with people who might be of a slightly nervous disposition is where we have to ride up on some concrete blocks that run alongside the train tracks across from Kilcoole Station Platform.  Timing is of the essence as well as speed (believe it or not) and to keep balanced one must keep moving forward!

Once that bit’s over the dash to Greystones is a piece of cake and it leads to the best part of the entire stretch, which is of course the bit where we get to quaff quality coffee & graze on freshly handmade sandwiches whilst baking in the sun at the Beach House Pub across from the all new Greystones Marina.

It is no wonder that the Wicklow Town to Greystones beach route is one of our most popular routes.

This really is the perfect day for a family or group of friends.  Fatbike Adventures have kids bikes suitable for children from the age of 6 and upwards.  Check out all of our pics from the day on our Facebook event page here
