We leave Blessington on the Kilmalum Road and after 2km we start the only climb of the cycle up Bishops Hill - it is about 1.5km long and a little steep in parts but not too taxing. We then have a nice long descent into Ballymore Eustace Village. It's then onto the R411 for a couple of kilometers before we turn right onto the L2023 where we pass Punchestown Racecourse. After 1km, we turn right onto the R410 and that takes us back to Blessington. This is a mainly flat route with only one short steep climb and a few small drags.

I am a member of the local cycling club here in Blessington, the Reservoir Cogs. I’m passionate about cycling and all things outdoors mainly because of the area I live in and what it has to offer. I’d like to welcome cyclists of all levels to join me so I can show you our beautiful area and to help you build a level of fitness and enjoyment, to meet new like minded people and of course coffee and cake!
Lone cycle this evening around the quiet roads of Ballymore Eustace. Lovely picture of the Blessington Lake on the return leg.
