Lets celebrate the winter solstice, with a short spin on the shortest day of the year.
We will meet inside the entrance to Forrest Little Golf Club (please don't block the gate).
We will travel up Cooks Lane, turning left and using the roundabout to come all the way back on ourselves. After a few hundred metres, we turn left onto Killeek Lane and continue out by Rivermeade. We then take a left to Surgalstown before continuing through Kilsallaghan, Glebe Road and on to Thornton Hall. Look out for a right turn to Rath Lane, this will take us over the border into County Meath. From here, we head straight across the old N2 towards, but not quite as far as, Kilbride. We turn left towards the townland of Cluthe and go back to Coolquay Common, stopping at 'Bradys' for gingerbread lattes and mince pies - well, it is the season!
Suitably warmed up, we cross the main road and turn left at the Coolquay Lodge, continuing up towards the primary school at Kilcoskan, where we take the opposing right turn. We make our way back via Corrstown Golf Club, Surgalstown and Lauristown to Kilreesk Road, Killeek Lane, the Naul Road, Cooks Lane and back on to where we started.
Happy Winter Solstice - The evenings are getting brighter and Summer is on its way!

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!
