Next Social Chapter - Final Plans

Ok I asked for some suggestions were you might like to go for the next run out…

The Glen/Port areas where mentioned a few times, so you asked and I listened.

On Sunday I headed to port with some of the crew from Tir Chonaill Gap Cycling Club to do a bit of recce for a route all i can say is WOW.. We peddled a few loops to see what we could come up with keeping the beginners in mind. I’m not going to sugar coat it, the climbs are tough and there was a bit of hike a bike today but boy is it worth it.

This is an outstanding part of the county and every climb is rewarded with breath taking costal views. The route will be the same as others, beginner friendly and if you have to get off for a push or take a breath thats all good, (I did today as well as about 50 photo stops).
