Belmont Bike Farm & Bray Head – Fatbike Adventures HQ

Belmont Demesne / Bike Farm & Bray Head, are the veritable nerve centre of adventure by fatbike in Ireland’s Ancient East. We proudly boast the largest outdoor pump track in Ireland in surroundings that have been the location for several Hollywood block buster films.
This cycling paradise is located in North County Wicklow, smack in-between the towns of Bray and Greystones.

If you’re thinking about biking in Dublin, we just happen to be on Dublin’s doorstep about 30 minutes by car/train from the city centre on the coast.  If you’re not in the mood for Wicklow then we also offer a tour in the Dublin Mountains.

Our Belmont cycle route brings you on hand crafted single track trails through the natural beauty of the Silent Bogwood forest up onto and around the top of Bray Head, and, if you’re feeling energetic even the Little Sugar Loaf Mountain. Bray Head promises spectacular views of the Irish Sea (even Mount Snowdon in Wales on a clear day), the Wicklow Mountains, coastline all the way North of Bray to Dublin, and South of Greystones to Wicklow Town and Wicklow Head.

There are various trails at Belmont, most are manageable for people with all levels of fitness. There is now also the option of using an electric fatbike which is a huge favourite for families with children ages 10 and older.


We serve freshly ground coffee in our bike shop & right next door there’s awesome wood-fired sough-dough pizza on tap for pre and post ride recovery refreshments.

Why not bring your own bike in for repair/servicing at our fully equipped bike shop and indulge in eating / drinking / riding of bikes while you wait.

The trail head & car park are 270m above sea level with the summit of the Three Rock Mountain at 444m above sea level. The three large rock formations i.e. the namesake of the mountain are nearby Two Rock Mountain at 536m a.k.a. the Fairy Castle.

Parts of this terrain can be quite technically challenging so if it’s been a while since you were on a bike, it might be worth considering either our  Ballinastoe Mountain Bike Trail or Belmont Bike Farm & Bray Head tour routes in next door – County Wicklow.

This can be either a full or half day trip. We start at either Wicklow’s famous Gaol or the 8th century viking Black Castle, both are located close to Wicklow Pier. If you’ve seen The Guard with Brendan Gleeson & Don Cheadle then this is the very pier in the final scene of the classic 2011 film.
We head North alongside the working docks and hopefully catch a glimpse of Sammy the Seal blagging his daily fish from The Fishman before gliding effortlessly along the tidal river onto the Murrough for a quick blast on Ireland’s only outdoor pump track before continuing along the beach towards Greystones.
