We start in Blessington Town Square and cycle the short distance to the start of the greenway. From there, we follow the path along the greenway, passing through forests while in sight of the Blessington Lakes. We then arrive at the little boat jetty in Russlestown before returning the same way back to Blessington. You do not need a fancy or expensive trail or mountain bike, a normal road bike will suffice for this ride. Ride to include a coffee stop at the café situated at the start of the Greenway. Please bring coffee money and a face mask.

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!
