This spin is a “figure of 8” loop around Kilcolgan. Starting from the school in Clarinbridge we travel south through Kilcolgan and on to Ardrahan where we turn right towards Kinvara. About 3.5km down this road, just after we cross over the motorway, we will again turn right towards Ballinderreen which will take us through some very scenic countryside on quiet roads. We will turn right in Ballinderreen and cycle back to Kilcolgan where we will stop for coffee at Circle K having completed about 22km. Don't forget to bring some money for coffee and cake, and don’t forget to bring a face mask.
After the coffee break, we will cross the road and head towards Craughwell turning left just after Killeeneen school at the Liam Mellows memorial monument. We will then make our way back to Clarinbridge travelling through Kilcornan estate along the way. Total distance will be around 33.5km.

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 dry and sunny morning and a full attendance for our spin. An additional bonus was the delicious crumble which Jana had brought along for the group to have with our coffee at Circle K in Kilcolgan.
