This is a new route which will take us from Cashel to New Inn on the old N7 Cork Road. In the centre of the village we will take a left for Clonmel. As we arrive in Poulmuca (I'll leave you to translate that), we will take another left onto a nice quiet road that takes us towards Fethard until we come to Darcy's Cross. Taking another left, we will make our way on the Cashel to Clonmel road to Rosegreen, and then head back to Cashel for our coffee break and chat.

I joined the Cashel Rock Pedallers in 2014. Since then I built up my distances, from an initial 5km in 2016, completing a 170km on the 2012 Olympics Road Race Course! I have also completed many more Sportives, including all four Great Dublin Bike Rides. If I can do it at nearly 70, so can you!
After a night of heavy rain we set off on our AXA Community Bike Ride from the Rock of Cashel.
This was friends Lias and Christina's first spin and having made our way down the Main Street and out the Cork Road, it was a flip of a coin to take the old N8 or the much quieter 'Old Road' with the quiet road winning.
As expected, this turned out to be the right choice with lovely views of cloud shrouded Sliabh na mBán, Galtee and Knockmealdown mountains, to our left, right and centre.
Continuing on, we arrived at Castle lake Cross on the Cashel to Clonmel Road and in the 16Km only met two cars.
From here we headed to Rosegreen, passing the front entrance to the world renowned Ballydoyle Racing Stables.
After a brief stop in the village we pedalled on to Cashel and our much appreciated coffee sitting outside The Bake House, where we mulled over a very enjoyable ride on a glorious crisp, autumnal, sunny Sunday morning.
