The weather for Sunday looks to be quite good if a little on the cool side with a very gentle breeze from the north east. We are suggesting the route up the old Dublin Road (R639) to just short of Rathcormac, taking a right there at Michael Flatley’s country pile and back the R626 to Midleton. Then taking the back road (R624) to Fota with a proposed coffee stop in our old favourite Ballyseedy Garden Centre. the full route can be seen here, it shows as 66km but is actually about 70km as the route on the map stops at Dunkettle on the way back. We are just showing one route as we will be missing some people to the training weekend in Kenmare and also some of our faster colleagues will be making their seasonal bike racing début (as Team Awesome) in the Lacey Cup, hope they have a successful and safe day. Depending on numbers turning up at the start we can decide if we need a shorter route or not. Meet at the usual time of 9:00am at City Hall. Layer up well and bring some calories, banana, gel or bar.
