From Canal Square, we make our way to the Sion Road. After approximately 4kms on Sion road, we take a left for Dunbell. At Connolly's Pub we take a left and after a further 3kms, we go through a cross roads at the main Bennettsbridge-Gowran road. After carefully crossing this busy road we proceed on a quiet, country road for 3kms until we reach the village of Dungarvan. We than take a left onto the busy Thomastown to Gowran road.

I am a leisure cyclist for many years. Over the last few years I have participated in many AXA Community Bike Rides and like their camaraderie and ethos. I have completed the leaders course so that I can share that enjoyment with fellow leisure cyclists.
