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!
Arriving at the Gashouse Bridge, the flow on the river put a doubt in the mind that we would get far down the pathway.
Setting off and pedalling down past the orchards hope was rising but it wasn't long before we had to turn back because of the flood on the river.
No point in taking any chances, so we returned back to the bridge and took to the road. Heading out the Waterford road as far as Kilsheelan where we did a U-turn back to Clonmel and a nice cup of coffee.
