Sunday Cycle, 8 Nov

12039565_903467206396044_3540691929157600668_nWeather is not much better for Sunday morning.  Rain and strong southerly wind forecast.  You can take the easy option and stay in bed or you can be a badass.  I’ll provide two route options.  Both are a little shorter than last week’s options, taking account of the wind.  The shorter option heads for Kinsale via Carrigaline and Belgooly and clocks in at just over 62km.  The longer option starts the same but instead of turning off for Belgooly it takes in a lap of the Minane Bridge classic race route before turning off and exploring the headland around Summer Cove.  It also takes a slightly different route home via the old Kinsale road.  Take note that the profile for the long route is fairly shark-toothed.  The shorter route has a few hills but overall it’s nice and short and should be very manageable.  Be sure to take conditions into account.  It looks like a rain jacket is a must but perhaps a rear light might be advisable also.  Safety first and always.  On that note, if the forecast worsens between now and Sunday please keep an eye on Facebook for updates.  We won’t cycle in dangerous conditions.
