Day 1 sees us leaving The Capuchin Day Centre on Bow Street after breakfast in the direction of the N4 Lucan Road. From there we head through Leixlip, Maynooth, Kilcock, Enfield, Mullingar, Edgewordstown, Longford and onto Drumshambo. A total distance of 160 km.
Day 2 sees us leaving Drumshambo and cycling to Boyle and onto Gurteen, Tubbercurry, Ballina, Crossmolina and finally arriving in Belmullet. A total distance of 140 km.
Anybody who knows these roads will know that they are mostly flat with a few nice dips here and there. There is a nice hillclimb as we ascend the Ox Mountains but but its worth it to get to the top for the scenery and of course the downhill descent into Bonniconlon!
If this daunts you, then you should know everyone who has taken part on this trip has made it and enjoyed the weekend! Our stewards will always be there to give you a helping hand and that much needed motivational speech on the move!
