School transport can meet the group in Newport and we bring bikes back to our depot in Westport. We highly recommend you to end the tour in Newport as our experience is the round trip is to much for some children and leads to a lot of stop start and delays for the whole group on the way back
when arrived at Newport bikes are parked up beside
the river where there is a picnic area , a fine playground and a large bar /restaurant which can handle large groups indoor or outdoors we arrange in advance the no of seats required to keep group together when you arrive

To make sure that everything works a smoothly as possible and all eventualities are covered, we provide a Paddy & Nelly staff member as a tour guide for the duration of tour. We provide road side assistance with our business vehicle and trailer. This is ideal to assist any cyclist in distress, minor accidents. puncture bike replacement etc. This vehicle will shadow the group and communicates with our tour guide ready to attend and assist with any thing that may happen.
We recommend a light rain jacket be brought and warm jumper (as additional warmth may be required).
Please ensure you bring some water and a snack for the break.
