Description

Leaving Strandfield Business Park, we turn left onto the R730 and cycle up the cycle lane turning left again just after the Farmer's Kitchen hotel. We will continue down this road, cycling through Killaine and back around to the junction of the main R730 road again where we cross straight over and cycle up into Piercestown. Arriving at Piercestown church we turn left again, leaving the village. About 1-2km down this road we turn off to the right. We cycle up through Knocknagall, eventually entering the village of Murrintown where we make two right turns and head for Johnstown Caste Estate. It's here we take our coffee stop and toilet break (coffee stop is 20 mins approx). When we are refuelled, we will then leave Johnstown Castle, taking a left turn and cycling back through Rathaspeck and Coolballow which is all downhill. At the end of Coolballow we pick up the main R730 road, turning right to bring us back up to Strandfield Business Park where we started. A beautiful route at any time of year but particularly nice in Autumn.

About

I love my bike! I love adventure, being outside in the fresh air, on the move, all year round. I love how it makes me feel - Alive! I honestly believe the best experiences are shared experiences which is why I decided to register to become a Ride Leader. I want to share the 'Feel Good' with as many people as possible. We will never be as young again as we are now, let's give it a go and see what happens!

Gorgeous, warm, sunny Autumn day for a countryside cycle. Thanks to everyone for their company today. It was a great day to be out.
