Description

Leaving the car park, we turn right and right again and make our way over to Cornwall, Killurin. We take the lower road here and make our way along the winding/undulating road through Ballyhogue Crossroads. We continue up past Kilgibbon Woods and on towards Borrmount where we take a right turn and head down through St. Johns. At the bottom of the hill, we turn left and make our way up onto the R744 to Tomduff. Next, we turn down to the right, following a small road with a quaint bridge over the River Urrin. We continue all the way up to our left turn into St. Patrick's Street and Duffry Gate. At Duffry Gate, we turn left again and follow Bellefield Road and Milehouse Road all the way up to our left turn before the roundabout. Our coffee stop is on Milehouse Road (20 minutes approximately). We head down towards the area known as 'The Still' (at Monart) where we make a left turn and follow the L2030 back up to the R744. We cycle back a short distance in the opposite direction to which we came until we pick up the junction of Knockinarshat Crossroads. Here, we turn right and head down towards Borodale - we will pass over the Boro River here. This road leads us back onto the L2050. After a short distance on this road, we take a left turn and head in the direction of Bree. We get a good look at Bree Hill from here. Any takers? Not likely! Those mountain bikers that frequent Bree Hill may not be too pleased to see us checking out their trails!!! It's the road for us. Leaving Bree Village, we pick up the L2048 which takes us out onto the busier R730. We continue along on the R730 all the way back to Killurin. We will cycle past the road we came out on and pass over the viaduct in Glynn, taking a left hand turn here. This road takes us back up to the church car park at Glynn where today's spin comes to an end. Today is all about bridges and rivers. The Enniscorthy area has some beautiful old walls and stone bridges passing over the numerous little rivers that all flow into and help make up the River Slaney.

This route has lots of little small hills. New faces are very welcome on all rides!

About

I love my bike! I love adventure, being outside in the fresh air, on the move, all year round. I love how it makes me feel - Alive! I honestly believe the best experiences are shared experiences which is why I decided to register to become a Ride Leader. I want to share the 'Feel Good' with as many people as possible. We will never be as young again as we are now, let's give it a go and see what happens!

Today's cycle certainly got us over 'The Hump'. It could almost be described as the cycle of 100 hills! It was good though. A beautifully mild December day with no wind meant the surrounding countryside was peaceful and still. We enjoyed everything from rolling countryside to idyllic settings with little stone bridges, rivers and hedgerows. We took our coffee stop at Enniscorthy town, near enough to the half way point and ambled on after that on a slighly different route back to our start point. It was definitely a route worth doing.
