Starting from Kilcornan House, we cycle out the back gate of Kilcornan and turn left taking us up to Casey’s Cross where we turn right to bring us to the Briar café. We turn left there and cycle along the hard shoulder until we take the right turn towards Athenry at Derrydonnell. Shortly after going down this road, we turn left to bring us down by the Athenry golf course and continue on to the end of this road. We then turn right and climb over the motorway and on to Athenry. We continue on from there towards Derrydonnell, turning left after we go under the motorway to bring us back to the Briar café where we stop this time for coffee having cycled around 26km. Don't forget to bring some money for coffee and cake.
After the coffee break, we cycle towards Craughwell, turning right before Craughwell to bring us past Craughwell soccer grounds and the Clarinbridge Care Centre. At the end of this road we arrive back at Kilcornan where we complete the spin for a total distance of about 38km.

I've been cycling for over 20 years both individually and as part of a cycling club. I've really enjoyed cycling in a group, both the exercise and the social side. I'd like to help others in the locality to get out on their bikes and get that enjoyment as well. Nothing too strenuous and guaranteed to include some decent coffee stops along the way!
Lovely sunshine and finally some warmer temperatures for our spin. We did get hit with one heavy shower along the way but had nearly dried off by the time we arrived at our new coffee stop, the Briar cafe. Another good option for a stop. We'll be back again!
Overall stats for the spin:
Average Speed: 23 km/hr
