Not for the faint hearted. Please note we will be cycling on some very narrow roads and the road surface may not be smooth!

Leaving the church car park at the rear exit, we take a left hand turn and head over to Barntown Village where we turn right and then right again. We make our way up the very narrow winding road that takes us all the way up to the Three Rocks Monument. Passing the monument, we head over through Colestown (L30191) and continue over to meet the L3026 where we turn right. At the crossroads, we continue straight ahead and cycle past the mast and take in the beautiful views of Wexford Harbour. At the end of this road, we take a left hand turn up towards Pennylands and at Paddys Rock, we turn left and head down into Trinity, Taghmon. At Turners Crossroads, we take a left hand turn and pick up the L7037 and continue down this very narrow road until we come to whats known as The Hand of Harperstown Crossroads. We turn right here and follow the R738 all the way to Taghmon Village. We will take our coffee stop here (Coffee stop is 20 minutes approximately). Leaving Taghmon, we will head up the main street and follow the L4016. We will cycle on this until we turn right at St. Garvan's well. This brings us under the N25 where we continue along passing through two crossroads and eventually coming into the parish of Glynn. We cycle through the next crossroads and make our way down the narrow little road that takes us into Holmestown Little. We have a staggered junction to pass through at Holmestown and the short journey from here takes us to Larkin's cross. We choose the under pass here and follow the old road down towards the school where we will cycle through the gap in the hedge and onto the double path which takes us back up the church car park.

About

I love my bike! I love adventure, being outside in the fresh air, on the move, all year round. I love how it makes me feel - Alive! I honestly believe the best experiences are shared experiences which is why I decided to register to become a Ride Leader. I want to share the 'Feel Good' with as many people as possible. We will never be as young again as we are now, let's give it a go and see what happens!
