Description

This spin takes us out the quiet back roads to Clara where we will link up with the R712 cycleway (Kilkenny - Carlow road). On arriving in Paulstown, we will stop for a coffee and snack at Applegreen. We will return to Kilkenny through Gowran, then taking the back roads through Dunbell and Maddockstown, along the Sion Road and finish at MacDonagh Junction .

Check that your tyres are pumped up and your bike is in good working order before arriving at the start location. Please make sure you wear clothing appropriate to the weather conditions. Also, remember your money for the coffee stop.

A blustery start but after some delicious cake at Molly's we enjoyed some fabulous sunshine all the way back to town.

Take part in these upcoming bike rides
