Many Types of Bikes
We have a range of bikes available to rent including hybrids and classic bikes
Our base is at the historic Grand Canal Stores Building in Sallins. We set-up our bike rental service in 2022 to coincide with the upgrading of the towpath along the Grand Canal to a National Greenway route. We are passionate about the Grand Canal in Kildare and have operated bargetrip.ie in Sallins since 2014. We are also an accommodation provider and have the Roisin Dubh Houseboat Floatel, and Sallins Loft apartment for short-stay tourist letting on the waterfront in Sallins.
Cycling along the Grand Canal in Kildare is a mix of urban and rural experiences. Starting from our base in the picturesque inland harbour village of Sallins you can cycle down to the Cliff at Lyons, up to Robertstown or over to the market town of Naas.
All routes travel through lush green countryside, past 240 year old bridges and locks with occasional barges cruising by.
Surfaces vary with some sections tarmacked, some gravel and some grass track. From spring 2023 the section from Cliff at Lyons to Sallins will be fully upgraded to a hard surface cycle track.
