We’ve compiled all the Waterford Greenway Bike Hire business on this page. You can check them out below. All Depots are highly rated. Some of the business have similar names, so before booking make sure that you choose the one that best suits your needs. When choosing which bike remember the following points.
- Where do you want to cycle to?
- Do you need a shuttle bus?
- Does the depot have another depot you can drop off your bike at?
Waterford Greenway Bike Hire
Of course you may cycle the Greenway on your own bike if you wish but if you’d prefer not to cart it all the way down to Waterford, there are a number of outlets providing a range of bike-hire services. Most providers will be able to offer a choice of regular push-bikes, electric bikes or a hybrid (combination of both electric and push-bike). They also offer a range of options for children, including children’s bikes, child-seats, tow-alongs and adult/ child tandems (but guess who’ll be doing all the work on that one!).
The Greenway is mostly flat and doesn’t require a high level of fitness to cycle the 46km (while stopping for some well-earned breaks along the way of course!) It can comfortably be cycled by the average cyclist on a regular pushbike over about a six-hour period.
However you may be on a leisurely weekend break and wish to exert as little energy as possible on the trip – in that case, the electric bike is the one for you! The hybrid of course, gives you the best of both worlds, you can get a little bit of exercise but let the electric kick-in when you begin to feel the strain! The operators will be able to discuss all of the options with you
**Please note, due to Covid-19 restrictions, the bike hire companies along the Waterford Greenway are not currently offering a shuttle-bus service. They may offer to collect your bikes from an agreed point point along the route, allowing you to get a taxi (or a lift from a friend!) back to your car. Otherwise, please allow time for the return-cycle back to the depot from which you rented the bike. Don’t forget that the views on the way back will be completely different to the views on the way out!
