This week we will ride the Suir Blueway from Clonmel to Carrick-on-Suir and back. Starting at the Gashouse Bridge in Clonmel, we will take the Blueway path running alongside the river Suir via Kilsheelan and on to Carrick-on-Suir where we will stop for a coffee break before heading back to Clonmel.
I joined the Cashel Rock Pedallers in 2014. Since then I built up my distances, from an initial 5km in 2016, completing a 170km on the 2012 Olympics Road Race Course! I have also completed many more Sportives, including all four Great Dublin Bike Rides. If I can do it at nearly 70, so can you!
Arrivi g at Gashouse Bridge there was quire a swell on the rive Suir, so the question was, will we get all the way to Carrick-on-Suir.
Setting out, the flow of the river put further doubt on doing so.
Pedalling on we passed Powerstown and on towards Bulmer Orchards and our fears were confirmed. The pathway was flooded so, not taking any chances, we turned back and took to the road instead.
Heading out the Waterford road we peddled as far a Kilsheelan and after a short break made our way back to Clonmel.
Not to worry, there will be many more days for the Suir Blueway.
