This experience is truly unique, all weather and fun! I will collect you from your location in the evening, with coffees in hand we will drive for about 30 to 40 mins into the Dublin/Wicklow Mountains. First when we get to the location you will be able to see the entire city lit up. Worth taking some pictures and videos of the city from above. As we get on the bikes wrapped up warm (waterproofs included!) and cycling up the hill we will go over some basics of mountain biking and talk about fitness and how to cycle at night. At the top of the climb the views become even more stunning, sometimes if the moon is full its almost like a spiritual experience guys, when your in the mountain at night and the silence and depth of the forest really does wash away any stress, negative energy and just beams connection with nature. We will start with a relatively easy cycle up hill, which we can walk, depending on your fitness level. Then into our first single track decent. It is genuinely amazing to be in the forest at night with lights going through the designated trails, it focuses your mind on that one experience only. After the first descent we will then gauge your comfort levels and discuss the trails we will cycle next. Stopping for regular breaks and some snacks/water as needed. When finished I like to take my new friends to a local bar for a hot coffee.
Hey, I’m Brian, I’ve been racing, teaching, and competing in Enduro Mountain Biking for 5+ years, prior to that I had been doing the same with Motocross. I’m addicted to two wheels and gravity. Being a local to the Irish mountains mostly around Wicklow and Dublin mountains, I know all the trails from beginner to full out shredfest!!! I’m an all weather rider and always gauge riders by their confidence on the basic trails before moving forward, no matter how knarly you might be! My life is mountain biking and being in nature, typically I shred with my dog Einstein and keep the climbs gentle unless you want to push or walk. I’m a non judgmental, easy going, friendly coffee drinker that gets most of his kicks by seeing the smiles on new and expert riders after lots of high fives and some adrenaline fueled fun. Hope to hear from you soon

I'll be collecting you and bringing you back
Well maintained Mountain Bike. Professional Mountain Bike Lights. Knee Pads. Helmet. Gloves. Puncture Repair Kits.
We will head to Ticknock forest, its a dense forest sheltered by the elements. The trails here are vast in type, from total beginner to sketchy technical and steep. Of course depending on your level we will never ride anything that's outside your comfort level. I know this place like the back of my hand. The reason for this location is its accessible from the city without too much driving, its looking over the city is very safe.
You’ll love it, you are completely safe, my dog Einstein will most likely join us. This is my genuine passion and I try to give you the most positive happy experience with some cardio, hopefully adrenaline and lots of good memories of a truly unique experience looking over the curry from the hills
