Easy Going

Ballyduff to Inistioge Loop 1

The Quay Car Park, Thomastown
Group size
8 Participants
All Bikes

We will start from The Quay car park, travelling out over the bridge on the R448 and turning left at Grennan mill towards the GAA grounds. We will head on up the hill to Ballyduff cross where we will take a left turn. This road will take us out to the bridge where we will be turning right for Inistioge on the R700. We will take a break for our cuppa, cake and chat along the very scenic river bank. We will then take the R700 straight back the whole way to Thomastown. This is a very scenic ride, with exceptional views of the river Nore and well worth the effort. As this is the first day of National Bike Week it is yet another great reason to get out for a bike ride.

I am a cycling enthusiast and feel it is such a great way to exercise in a leisurely enjoyable pastime. Having experienced being a participant with our Kilkenny group, I felt it would be a great asset to have a local group in Thomastown, which is why I became a leader. I try to vary my rides distance and speed wise to accommodate everyone's level of fitness and bike confidence.
