Description

We leave the car park, heading up past the church and turning right at the rear gate of the church grounds, heading in the direction of Slaneyview and eventually Kingsford. We follow this road for about 2kms, climbing slowly for the 1st kilometre and then the route flattens for the next kilometre. We take the 2nd left turn at the cools and head up the hill in the direction of Trinity, passing Forth Mountain Stud. We cycle up this road and take a left hand turn which takes us up Forth Mountain, where we turn left again passing Raven Rock on our way. We come to the junction with the L3027 road at the end of this road and we will turn right and then take another left. At the end of this road we turn right again, cycling down through Coolree. We eventually go under the N25 road and make our way up the short hill to Clonard road. We will make a left turn and cycle down Glenville road. At the bottom of Glenville road, we take a left turn and cycle down to the New Ross road roundabout. We will cycle straight through it and continue on straight back out to Barntown church car park.

There are wild deer living on Forth Mountain - You never know, we might get lucky!

On this particular cycle, it's a bring your own cuppa! Unfortunately, there is nowhere available to stop for tea/coffee, so feel free to bring a small backpack and a flask.

About

I love my bike! I love adventure, being outside in the fresh air, on the move, all year round. I love how it makes me feel - Alive! I honestly believe the best experiences are shared experiences which is why I decided to register to become a Ride Leader. I want to share the 'Feel Good' with as many people as possible. We will never be as young again as we are now, let's give it a go and see what happens!
