Beautiful evening for a bike spin. Leaving the Springfield Hotel, I headed towards Lucan Golf Club and up onto Tubber Lane. This is a great road as it's very low traffic and you are in the countryside. At the top of Tubber Lane, I turned right over the Hazelhatch railway bridge and then immediately left onto Lord's Road. From here it was a nice spin to Ardlough over the canal bridge and immediately turning left to cycle back down the canal path towards Lyon's Estate. Down to the next bridge turning right onto Lyon's Road back into Newcastle. From Newcastle heading for Peamount we took a left turn just before the hospital which brought us back to the Hazelhatch bridge over the canal, continuing towards Celbridge and turning right back on to Tubber Lane heading back to Lucan and returning to the Springfield Hotel. It was the nicest evening so far this year and I look forward to the next AXA Community Bike Ride on the 11th of July next.
