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 Glasraí & Goodies for coffee. We will return back to Kilkenny along the back roads towards Blanchfield House, Dunbell, Maddockstown, along the Sion Road and finish at MacDonagh Junction .
Any type of bike is suitable as long as it's in good working order. Please make sure you wear clothing appropriate to the weather conditions. Also, remember your money for the coffee stop.

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.
Great to be back leading group rides. A small group today out enjoying the sunny day on the back roads of Gowran.
