Is there anything nicer than spinning along a countryside road, on a bright, dry, crisp Autumn day?
The Autumn series of cycles offers four bike rides in very different locations. Each with it's own challenge, these bikes rides are an opportunity to explore areas that you may not be particularly familiar with. The individual routes are all stunning in their own right. Yet again, I find myself saying “Aren't we the luckiest people alive, getting to live where we live?” - So, who's in? Who fancies a 'Micro Adventure' on a Saturday morning?
Murrintown - Bannow Bay - Duncormick - Baldwinstown
Heading right at the gate, we make our way over to the L3044 and through Cleariestown. We continue straight through the crossroads with the R738 and eventually pick up the L3048. We stay on this road until we eventually come to Bannow Bay as it opens up in front of us out of nowhere. We take a left turn here onto the R736 and cycle in the direction of Cullenstown (there is an opportunity here to visit the shell house if you like) and then on to Duncormick. This route has a lovely 'holiday' feel to it. It's one of my favourites. From Duncormick, we pick up the R736 again and make our way over to Baldwinstown for our coffee stop at The Forge (Coffee stop is 20 mins approx.). Revived and refueled after some delicious coffee (or tea), we cycle up the R738 turning off to the right onto the L3041 which takes us back up to Murrintown.
We are midway through November today, I think we can expect to see some beautiful colours in the landscape.
New faces are welcome on all cycles!

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!
