Thanks to http://www.northwestadventuretours.ie for letting us test a 360 camera rig on their bicycles.
Here is exactly what it's like to cycle in Slish woods, part of the lake shore paths along Lough Gill in Sligo. Part of the Sligo way.

------Technical Information ----
The Gopro cameras were setup in the non-waterproof freedom360 rig attached to a FEISOL monopod on a Manfrotto tripod mounted to a backpack. Positioned above and the the back of the rider at around forty-five degrees. Tied down with rope. A makeshift setup, but it held up to the task.
To get the true impact of this video watch it using your smartphone on a Virtual Reality headset - from Google Cardboard, Samsung Gear VR or else an Oculus Rift.
