This is nice out and back ride from New Ross to the charming town of Inistioge. The route will mainly be on the R700 which is typically not too busy and has lovely rolling hills and scenery.

The route has some moderate hills (356m of climbing), but we will always regroup at the top of each to ensure we stay together. Some of the roads are narrow, so we’ll be cycling in single file for most of the time. Whenever we can, we’ll cycle in pairs.  

See MapMyRide link for complete navigational details. We’ll stop at a local coffee shop in Inistioge to relax before the return journey.

Whilst this is a No-Drop-Ride, riders should be at a fitness level to maintain a 20km/ph pace on flat ground. No previous group riding experience required.

About

I’m originally from California and I’ve been cycling now for 45+ years. I have really enjoyed the countless adventures my bicycle has taken me on. I find cycling in a group enhances the experience, especially the camaraderie that typically takes place. As a group leader, my job is to ensure you enjoy yourself in a safe and controlled manner. I ensure the group stays together and that we set a pace and distance which everyone feels comfortable with. I hope you’ll join us!
