Leaving the community centre car park, we turn right in the direction of Kilmore quay. We follow the road all the way to Grantstown, where we meet the junction with the R738. We turn left here and cycle down through Baldwinstown, over the railway bridge and down through Newhouse, passing the canals and windfarm as we go. We eventually arrive into Kilmore Quay, where our coffee stop is at Mace. After coffee, we hop back on and make our way through the village, taking the road that runs along the seafront and playground. The view out to sea here includes the Saltee Islands on a clear day!
We cycle straight through the small roundabout and climb the short hill that takes us up out of Kilmore quay, following the road all the way to and through Kilmore Village and onto the small roundabout at the cemetry. We cycle through this roundabout and head in the direction of Ballycogley but take the first left for Mayglass before we reach it. We cycle through Mayglass and after passing Mayglass cemetry we take the next left turn in the direction of Loughgunnen which eventually leads us on to Murrintown lower. Continuing on, we reach Murrintown village and we are back to our start point.

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!
Beautiful sunny Winter's day. Light breeze on the way to Kilmore Quay. Very festive down on the quay. We changed our coffee stop and decided to try Sue's coffee ip at the GAA park at Kilmore Village. Very nice. We then decided we would detour a bit and cycled back to Murrintown via Bridgetown. Roads pretty quiet all the way back. No wind, full sunshine! Another great day on the bike.
