After a quick briefing and safety check we will depart the Arches Bar, turning on to the R619 heading east and past Quartertown Village to Cltda Bridge. Turning right at the T- junction and staying on the R638, we travel a kilometre or so, passing the site of the old sugar company and railway sidings. A short distance on brings us to Newberry cross roads, where we keep left on the road sign posted for Glantane. This nice, country road, leads us on to the village of Glantane.

Immediatey before the village, we take a sharp left, sign posted for Dromahane and the return leg of our route. This is another quiet, country road but with some up and down sections (nothing too streneous!). Arriving in the village of Dromahane, we will be stopping at the village centre and four cross roads, where we can avail of a break with tea or coffee at the village shop. Suitably refreshed, we resume our cycle, taking the road for Mallow. Approximately 3km later, we arrive at the T-junction at Gouldshill, turning left on to the R638 towards Quartertown village. Turning left through the village brings to the T-junction with R619. We will be turning right and rejoining the R619 before cycling another 2kms back to our start point at the Arche's Bar and Restaurant. Here, we can enjoy another tea or coffee with a bit of chat and craic if people wish and/or time allows.

I enjoy cycling as a recreational sport and as a family activity. Cycling is a low impact way to stay fit and experience the open air that's suitable for everyone. I am involved in a local Cycling Club, hold a Coaching qualification and coach our Youth members.

Very good spin out this morning. Great weather and great company and craic as usual.  Fast enough pace set by the two newbies. Had to tell them slow down. They were making the Leader look bad!!! Welcome coffee stop and some good chat. All enjoyed spin and looking forward to the next one.
