Description

If you're already managing 25/30k rides from home but ready to step it up, then this is the one for you…

We meet outside the church at Balheary ave/road, just outside Swords and keep to the quieter north county roads via Ballyboughal, Oldtown and a bit of a climb through Garristown. We'll aim to stop at The Lemon Thyme Cafe, before returning via Ashbourne but be prepared if it is busy, we will maintain our distance and take our break elsewhere. Be sure to bring plenty of sustenance to keep you going.

Please click here to familarise yourself with the Safety Guidance in place for group rides during Covid-19.

Note that insurance cover is only extended for the duration of the individual bike ride you have registered to complete.

About

Cycling 5 years in Fingal & a few holidays across Europe - most recently the Moselle wine valley & Bavarian Brewery Bike tour! In 2018, I took up the Cycling Ireland #2828challenge which led me to joining a club and completing a handful of sportives over the last year. Still learning and still enjoying the leisurely aspect whilst sharing a common interest, with new friends, plenty of coffee, cake and ice-cream!
