Belfast City Bike Tours and Bike Hire

Cycling Route
Belfast City Bike Tours offers a selection of fun and friendly bike tours and an extensive range of bikes for hire with full back-up and support. Our guided tours set out on Saturdays from our partner bikeshop Norm's Bikes and on Sundays from St. Anne's Square in central Belfast, and at other times by arrangement.

The tours last about 3 hours at conversational pace on safe, comfy City Cruiser bikes with plenty of sightseeing and refreshment stops. We give you a helmet and hi/viz gilet and can supply you with a waterproof bike cape if required.

Your safety is our priority - we follow carefully planned routes and ask you to sign a cycling competency agreement before you ride with us.

We can offer you advice on what's on, what to see, where to eat, drink and party in Belfast. City bike touring with us gives you an eco-friendly way to get to know the City quickly, meet like-minded travellers and help you to make the most of your time here.
