The forecast this far out could be a little ropey but at the moment it’s looking cloudy though dry and mild. There should be little wind to speak of. I’ll pitch two routes, one requiring a slightly more navigational skills than the other. The short route clocks in at 63km while the long route stretches to 83km. Both routes have much in common with a moderate amount of climbing. However the longer route climbs a little more with an additional loop through the heart of the Boggeraghs. A coffee stop in Blarney should see everyone back together to refuel and compare notes.
Renowned as I am for possessing the homing instincts of a pigeon, unfortunately I won’t be able to attend this Sunday. So whoever fancies taking on the longer route, please have a good look at the turns just after Nad and the turn to take you back from Gortroe to Bweeng.
Leaving City Hall @ 9am.
