All Bikes

We will head out the Old Dublin Road and at Cillin Hill we’ll link up with R712 cycleway (Kilkenny - Carlow road) and continue on for 8km and take the left turn onto the L6657. We will cycle along this road and take a left at the next T- Junction and cycle on to Clara. At the next junction take a right heading towards Johnswell, continue on to the next crossroads and follow the Ballyfoyle road. We will take the next left turn which will take you along the Brownstown road back to Kilkenny City where we can enjoy a coffee at Muse Coffee + Food Cafe.

Any type of bike is suitable as long as it's in good working order. Please make sure you wear clothing appropriate to the weather conditions. Also, remember your money for the coffee stop and a lock may be useful as we will probably end up sitting inside.
