Starting from Canal Square, we make our way to the Sion Road. We continue on the Sion Road for approximately 4km before diverting to Dunbell.
At Dunbell, we take a right turn and continue for around 3km on rural roads until we intersect the main Gowran to Bennettsbridge Road. The group then crosses the main road and joins a rural road for Dungarvan Village.
After 3kms we join the main road and turn right through the village. Around a kilometre beyond the village we take a minor road and ascend to the Tullaherin Monastic Site. We then proceed to Bennettsbridge for a well earned cup of coffee at Nicholas Mosse pottery. We return to Kilkenny City via Wallslough and the main Waterford Road.

I am a leisure cyclist for many years. Over the last few years I have participated in many Community Bike Rides and like their camaraderie and ethos. I have completed the leaders course so that I can share that enjoyment with fellow leisure cyclists.
Lovely morning for a group ride through the Kilkenny countryside, followed by a sociable coffee in 'Crafted' of Bennettsbridge.
