Description

We start at Carlingford Marina, head along the road through Carlingford and then along the shore road (hard shoulder) to Greenore golf course. We continue along the golf course boundary on a narrow lane before travelling 1km along the main road to Greenore. At Greenore we stop for coffee, visit the port and village and hopefully see 'Finn the Dolphin'. Leaving Greenore, we ride along the main road for about 1km and then turn left, riding along the coastal lane to Ballagan and on to Whitestown. From Whitestown, we travel along the country lane to St James' Well, cross the main road and head back along the shoreline road to Carlingford and on to the Marina.

It's all pretty flat apart from the 100 metre Marina hill at the start! We will be riding on public roads including many country roads and lanes, so a Hi-Vis is a pre-requisite. It's a nice 20km spin which will take about 2 hours including the coffee stop.

About

I live in Carlingford and enjoy spins around the Cooley Mountains and Peninsula plus further afield. My wife and I run ‘OnYerBike’, a bike hire business on the Carlingford Lough Greenway. My biggest achievement in cycling was completing the Prudential Ride London 100 mile event in 2019 – a big challenge involving lots of training - but I prefer much shorter rides that always involve some coffee and cake!
