This spin takes us out the quiet back roads to Clara where we will link up with the R712 cycleway (Kilkenny - Carlow Road). At Paddy’s Pub, we will take a right turn and continue on to Gowran, where we will stop at Molly's for coffee. We will return back to Kilkenny on the back roads towards Blanchfield House, Dunbell, Maddockstown, along the Sion Road and finish at MacDonagh Junction .
Make sure you wear clothing appropriate for the weather conditions and please remember your money for the coffee stop. A lock may also 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.
Sunshine all the way to Gowran and back, excellent coffee and cake at Molly's with plenty of chat.
