Padraig Sears, owner and guide of Green Road Cycle Tours, has a great love for outdoor activities. He is a frequent visitor to the French and Italian Alps, in summertime for mountain biking and touring and in the winter months for skiing. Such vacation activities are a continuation of his love of the outdoors and outdoor adventure activities which is available to him amongst Killarney’s National Park and the foothills of the MacGillycuddy Reeks, Ireland’s highest mountain range.
