The Paddy Tour of East Cork (with guest appearance by Cha & Miah)

Ah, today was just lovely! Spring weather after early rain as we left Dungarvan for a long one. Group of 9 to Lismore and on to Tallow. On the way up to Dungourney we met some local cyclists who tempted us to stretch our legs..so we raced down to the village and then back to our usual leisurely pace to Castlemartyr. After a brief coffee stop in Killeagh we pushed on again with a great tailwind. We thought that the hill from Piltown might cause a problem, but no…and after Kiely’s Cross we pushed on hard again.
Just terrific. Roast lamb immediately afterwards with mam and my sister rounded off a great morning! I’m thinking also that I might head over to the Lady Belle later this evening for interesting dissection of the finer points. Might even have a pint…
Here’s the GPS link… http://ridewithgps.com/trips/1255094 Rest now for a few days before we head to Waterford during the week for the Cycle Against Suicide, an awareness-raising event.
