Clarinbridge Loop

Clarinbridge National School (Scoil Mhuire)
Group size
8 Participants
Road/Hybrid Bikes

Starting from the school in Clarinbridge we head south and take the first left after Kilcolgan. We then turn right and travel along the “dark road”. At the end of this road, we turn left and travel to Craughwell where we will stop off for coffee at Chef’s café. Don't forget to bring some money for coffee and cake!

After the coffee stop we will continue past Chef’s café and under the narrow railway bridge to avoid the notorious railway tracks on the far side of Craughwell. We make our way back to Clarinbridge with a couple of twists and turns along the way coming back through Casey’s Cross and the water tower for a total distance of about 33km.

I've been cycling for over 20 years both individually and as part of a cycling club. I've really enjoyed cycling in a group, both the exercise and the social side. I'd like to help others in the locality to get out on their bikes and get that enjoyment as well. Nothing too strenuous and guaranteed to include some decent coffee stops along the way!

Another beautiful morning.  We were a bit late getting started due to a mix up on the start time.  A couple of new members on the group today and we had the full complement of 8 participants.  Delicious coffee and scones at Chef's Cafe in Craughwell and, of course, some good conversation.
