A lone cycle today. The weather in February can be so cruel to our planned cycles , but today was an exception . I didn't think I would get away without getting a drenching but I did! The old railway (greenway) from Barna is just amazing. When you enter from Barna car park you travel approx 1km towards Abbeyfeale you will see something out of the rain forest! Both sides of the tunnel are quite high & covered in green moss & with the water flowing down the gully's it was just amazing . Along the route to Abbeyfeale the track is well maintained & user friendly to all . I will defo be back , next spin will be all the way Rathkeale to Abbeyfeale & back approx 70k .
