Our journey will start on the Bleach Road out to Hennaberry's Cross. From there we’ll take the main road to Castlecomer. We’ll take a left turn in Castlecomer and up the hill to Frioda, from where we’ll have a nice spin downhill to Ballyragget where we’ll have a coffee stop. From here we’ll cycle to Freshford going left there along the Freshford road until we get to Three Castles where we’ll take a left on towards the Ballyragget road. We will go right and cycle to the junction that will take us onto Bleach Road where we will continue back to our finishing point - the Glendine Inn carpark.

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.

Since 2006, I have been a recreational and utility cyclist and I have worked with Kilkenny Cycling Tours. I'm a tutor with southeast cycling safety, KRSP and Cycling Ireland. My aim is to get more people on bikes so they can enjoy the health benefits it has to offer.

Started out as a lovely day but things changed from the top of Frioda. What should have been a lovely spin downhill ended up with us been pelted with cold rain all the way down to Ballyragget. After a well deserved coffee break we cycled to Freshford and back to Kilkenny city with plenty of showers to keep us company but we're not sunshine cyclists so a good spin was had by all!
