A merry meander on and off the beaten track, quiet back roads, main roads and cycle tracks. We meet at the front of the Coachmans Inn, on the Old Airport Road in Cloghran and make our way via Stockhole Lane, then Baskin onto the Malahide Road as far as Balgriffin. Taking the Moyne and Grange Roads to Baldoyle. Take care at the level crossing on Baldoyle Road, before turning left in the direction of Howth (don't worry, we're not going up the hill today!) and then right at Sutton Cross, to a Green area overlooking Dublin Bay. A few photos for the website, perchance a refreshing mug o'turkey soup and some turkey sandwiches - or whatever you're having yourself - Return via Strand Road (another level crossing) to Baldoyle and then onto the infamous Portmarnock greenway. Past Portmarnock railway station, the racecourse and Chapel Lane to Kinsealy. A short section of the Malahide Road, with a continuous but gentle ascent all the way back to the meeting point via Feltrim Quarry, Kettles Lane and the Old Airport Road.
(2 to 3hrs max, allows for delays, choo choo trains/sleighs, rest break etc.)
Cycling 5 years in Fingal & a few holidays across Europe - most recently the Moselle wine valley & Bavarian Brewery Bike tour! In 2018, I took up the Cycling Ireland #2828challenge which led me to joining a club and completing a handful of sportives over the last year. Still learning and still enjoying the leisurely aspect whilst sharing a common interest, with new friends, plenty of coffee, cake and ice-cream!
The morning after the Christmas Day before… One early morning cancellation (thanks for doing so) and one no-show (hope everything's okay and we'll see you on the next one!).
Great to get out in the (very) fresh air - just two of us, good chat and a nice leisurely spin. Home for the leftovers now!
