"Just want to say thank you for the wonderful cycling trip you organised for us. The itinerary was full of interesting things to see and was very achievable. You took great care that we were on safe routes with clear instructions as to things to do and see. The accommodation and restaurant choices were great too. We were blessed with wonderful weather as well, but felt we’d have coped even in the rain. Thank you also for all the advice about things to do in our couple of days after we finished cycling. Really valuable. Again thank you for facilitating a wonderful way to see your beautiful country. We would highly recommend this trip to others looking for a really fun way of seeing Northern Ireland, while feeling ably supported by someone like you, Hugo."

"Hugo is amazing! Our biking experience in Ireland was indeed a wonderful experience. From the moment we landed to the moment Hugo dropped us off at the airport, Hugo supported us, answered any questions we had, gave us sightseeing ideas in Belfast and made sure we had everything we needed. He rode with us several miles the first day, just to make sure we were well suited to our bikes. He noticed that my leg was affecting my riding, so unbeknown to us, he went home and fine tuned a different bike for me. We were into our first day about 15 miles and Hugo drove all that way to trade out my bike. As I said, Hugo is amazing. The scenery was breath taking, the routes were well planned and easy to navigate, the accommodations were very comfortable after a day of biking, and the food - oh what can I say - the food was excellent.
I give Hugo and Bed an Bike Northern Ireland - two thumbs way up!!"

"We did a two day guided tour round Strangford with B&B NI. Hugo’s knowledge of the locality was fantastic. I’m Northern Irish born and bred, but some of the great places we visited on our tour were completely new to me. An artisanal distillery and a secluded national trust village were two of the gems we stopped at en route. Hugo was quick to assess our cycling ability and make sure the pace was suitable throughout .ie a very leisurely pace! Hugo is one of those people who gets on well with everyone and we could not have enjoyed his company more. I’d absolutely recommend B&B NI to anyone!"
David, visiting from London
“Hugo shows great consideration when out with a group of mixed ability cyclists. His local knowledge and experience of County Down’s roads is second to none; all whilst having a good dose of Irish ‘craic’.
Couldn’t recommend cycling with Hugo more highly: good technical knowledge and very helpful!
Great lunch stops too...”
Anne, from Belfast
"Had the most wonderful day yesterday cycling the beautiful County Down countryside, organised by Hugo from Bed & Bike Northern Ireland. 5* experience all round - from the planning of our tour, the route we took, to the restaurant we ate in!
Part of the package included a tour of the Echlinville Distillery which I’d really recommend visiting - best bit was sampling the local gins obviously "
Tracey, from Belfast

"This trip has been so special as we have been so well looked after. Hugo planned our cycle route, accommodation, places to eat with absolute perfection.
He has been on hand daily to tend to all our requirements and appears to pop up just before we might made an incorrect decision! Thank you it's been a blast and for sure we highly recommend your company."
Marie, visiting from Scotland
"Great host. Lovely trip into the heart of Co. Down. I never knew there was so much to hear about in Comber, but that is the difference a brilliant tour guide makes. I could have walked, cycled and listened for hours more! Many thanks, Hugo"

"Thank you Hugo for a fantastic day ..Sooooo enjoyable"
Noel, from Belfast
"Hugo took us on a fantastic tour around the shores of Strangford lough, the route, the food and conversation were great. Hugh has a natural wit and charm that make you feel at easy and the day flew in, thanks again and we’ll be back next year with the rest of the family."
