A easy pace with a mixture of road and off-road cycling starting along the Canal walk by the River Nore in the shadow of Kilkenny Castle. We will cycle along the Bennettsbridge Road, Nuncio Road, Waterford Road, Coote’s Lane, Roberts Hill, some lane ways over to Stephen's Street and out the granges road to the Sycamores. We will head along the river bank known as Linear Walk, Riverside Drive, more laneways to Dean Street over the Francis Abbey Bridge, down the Quay, over the Lady Desart Bridge, up through the city centre and back to the Canal Square. We’ll then enjoy coffee and cake at the Flaky Tart!
Please make sure you wear clothing appropriate to the weather conditions. Also, remember your money for the coffee stop and a lock may be useful as we will probably go inside.
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.
Nice spin around Kilkenny streets and lane ways on a lovely spring morning.
