We will head out the Callan road towards Cuffsgrange and take a left turn, and cycle this road into Burnchurch. From there we’ll take a back road to the main Kilkenny Kells road, taking a right and heading into Kells. We will continue on over the bridge and take a left in the village and straight on this road into Stoneyford. We'll have a twenty minute stop at Knockdrinna Cafe for some coffee and scones. When we leave the cafe we’ll head towards Ennisnag and from there cycle the Annamult road to Bennettsbridge. We’ll then take the Sion Road back to Kilkenny and finish at Fresco’s.
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 end up sitting 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.
Frosty morning with blue skies and plenty of sunshine so we took it nice and easy to Knockdrinna where we enjoyed the coffee and lemon drizzle cake. We stayed on the main roads all the way back to Kilkenny to avoid the shady icy patches on the back roads. The cycle was enjoyed by all.
