We meet in the Car Park on R741 (Old Dublin Rd.) at The Frying Irishman/Ballyelland Pottery in Castlebridge opposite Wexford Block. This Spin is on quiet country roads and while it is described as “easy going” there is a climb up Esmonde Rd. out of Enniscorthy.
Leaving the car park, we cycle up the R741 for about one kilometre as far as Ballymartin Cross where we turn left and stop at the next T Junction. Here we turn right and cycle along quiet country roads through Garylough for a distance of around 5 kms as far as Cooney’s Cross where we turn left. We continue for about 2 kms until we reach Ballylucas Cross and at Ballylucas we turn right and cycle for 5.5kms to the village of The Ballagh. This part of the road is a little bit bumpy.
When we reach The Ballagh, we turn left onto the R744 towards Enniscorthy with Slieve na gCrann behind us and Slieve na Gioria in front. This is a well surfaced country road. From here we cycle through Finchogue and at the main Enniscorthy Blackwater Road we turn left. From here we continue for about three or four kms into Enniscorthy where we take our coffee break.
After the break we cycle up Esmonde Rd.as far as Drumgoold where we turn right and cycle for 8 kms to Ballymurn. We pass over the motorway just before Darby’s Gap and this road continues to Glenbrien and then to Ballymurn.
Around 2 kms after Ballymurn we reach Ballylucas, where we turn right and cycle the final 7 kms back to Castlebridge via The Airfield Road.

I live in Castlebridge in Co. Wexford and I am a keen leisure cyclist. I try to get out as often as possible and enjoy cycling mostly within my own locality. I would love to see more people out on their bikes, taking advantage of all the health and social benefits that cycling has to offer.
