Ideally located for the Mount Leinster and the Blackstairs Mountains which are enjoyable day biking. Starting from Kildavin, near Bunclody, forest tracks offer easy access. Mount Leinster is the highest point and a favourite spot for hang gliding.

Take in the Slaney Route which is approximately 53 km and takes 3½ hours. 
The Slaney route trip around north Wexford taking cyclists across the bridge and on towards Enniscorthy. The road to Castlebridge can be quite busy with traffic but after this the route takes on its true character; quiet scenic back roads which go up and down the numerous small hills that pepper the landscape. Enniscorthy is especially hilly and the decisive battle of the 1798 rebellion was fought on top of nearby Vinegar Hill. Later cyclists will pass by Norman fortifications on a hill at Magh Mayne. Cyclists should cross the bridge at Ferrycarrig and turn left onto a smaller road here for a straight run back into the town. Care is required on the R741, at the N30 in Enniscorthy and on the N11 at Ferrycarrig and at some junctions.

After an adventure filled day relax at the Mill Bar in a lively location.
