A more challenging route than usual but we will take our time and have a bit of fun along the way.
Starting off from Nurney School taking a left down towards the church. At O' Brien pub we take a left following the road up to Walterstown. Keeping left at the T junction on to Duneany cross.
Going straight at the cross all the way to Oghill. At the railway bridge we turn right heading for Richardstown and Grange beg (This road will be a little bit up hill). At the top of the road we take a right followed by a left onto the Kildare road. We then take another right up a hill towards Silliot and onto Newtown cross.
At Newtown cross we carry on straight towards the Tully road where we take a right followed by a left past the National Stud ( if it's open we can pop in for a cup of tea/coffee and maybe something nice to go with it) . Once refuelled and a few photos taken we take a left out of the stud. Keeping to the right at the Y in the road we carry on till we reach the Boherguy road. Turning right again onto the Boherguy road all the way to the Y at the top of the road to take another right.
Depending on how everyone is feeling we can;
Option A: Take the next right through Iron Hills, Kildoon, Blackditch and into Nurney again. 26.5 km
Option B: Take the 2nd right through Eagle Hill, Kildoon, Kilboggin, Booleigh and back to Nurney village. 30 km
If the National stud is closed we will stop at the garage in Nurney and have a tea/coffee and a chat.
Dont forget money for the tea/coffee stop!
I'm an enthusiastic leisure cyclist for the last 3 years and it would be great to get as many people as possible out cycling. I started off struggling to do 20km and now I look forward to the next sportive!
Great morning for a cycle. Wind on our back going up the hills. We had a good chat over tea/ coffee in the national stud. There was a little bit of wind rain and sunshine on the way home. Fantastic to see Vincent and Dominic coming from Newbridge and John and Fintan coming all the way from Naas. Not to forget Eddie only around the corner in Kildangan. See you all again soon!
