Description

Ok…time to up the gears or should I say down the gears, as it's time for a bit of climbing!

As ye may know in Askeaton we are at sea level. I have planned to cycle to the highest point in Limerick, Knockfierna hill (42ft short of a mountain). Not taking away from calling it just a hill, it has one of the best climbs around west Limerick. A lot of history here in this area so google Knockfierna so you will have a good idea of the area that your cycling around. 

This spin is a few levels above my previous cycles so beware & bring on the climbing legs. Depending on the weather, dress for the climate & remember climbing you will get warm & at the coffee stop you will need a few light layers as you may get a chill.

Today's spin started with the coffee stop! The fog came down just as we were ready to go, so the group on H&S grounds decided to do coffee/tea & scones first! It didn't take much convincing! So by 10.30am the route was changed to take out the climb & stay closer to home & on the quiet roads. So the Ballysteen Cappagh Route was undertaken. Everyone enjoyed the spin & thanks to James for the scones. Till our next spin out, safe cycling!
