    Run to Kesh (Friday 3rd)

    Finally, details of the much discussed Friday run to Kesh

    For anyone based around Dublin or arriving on a ferry that morning you might be interested in joining a few of us for the run up to Kesh with a couple of Photo Rally locations thrown in for free

    We'll be leaving from the Texaco at Ballydowd, Lucan where you should fill your tank & empty your bladder
    The station's after Liffey Valley and just before the Foxhunter Pub. The waypoint is N53 21.533 W6 25.097

    Due to a couple of factors, not least being ferry arrival times, we won't be departing until 14.00. The route will be mainly minor roads.
    We'll be heading roughly Celbridge, Photo Rally point 9, Longwood, Photo Rally point 7, Castlepollard, Photo Rally point 5, Ballinamore, Photo Rally point 22, Enniskillen & into Kesh.

    The run is about 3.5 hours riding time plus stops of about 10 minutes at each of the four Photo Rally points and a comfort stop for a cuppa, probably in Ballinamore.
    I plan to be in Kesh for about 19.00, just in time for a quick shower and a bite to eat before partaking of a few pints of the black stuff

    If anyone's arriving into Dunlaoghaire on the Stena Explorer at 12.24 we'll have a reception committee in the shape of Bin Ridin on hand to guide you across to Lucan. If anyone's arriving into Dublin Port either by Stena or Irish Ferries let me know & we'll see if we can get you 'met' too.

    Right, see youse Friday week
    Just 'cos you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you !

    Remember, experience only means that you screw-up less often.

    He doesn't need to - he's easily recognisable as one himself

    Hi Jockser.....

    If you're finding it difficult to get someone to meet riders from Dublin Port let me know. I'll meet them.

    Cheers

    You not going to the Kesh Weekend Frank?

    Wouild have been interested in joining in with the mob but I'm going to be in Derry rather than Dublin so it'll have to be a quick blast around Donegal on my way to Kesh.

    By the way Frank I owe you some money if my memory serves me right. How much and who do you trust me to give it to?
    We should learn from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism. [/I]

    Not before 16.00 - leave at 14.00, 90 mins riding + 2 Photo stops
    Coming onto the R395 just before C'pollard & heading out the bog road (R394) to Finnea. Say opposite the Supervalu (or whatever that shop is) on that road

    We arrive at Larne 06:00 Friday.
    What's the trip down to Dublin like?

    Thinking we could travel down leisurely during the morning then meet at 14:00 Hrs.

    Leisurely is right, it is 3hrs max from Larne to Lucan... You can fit is a lot on the way. Google Newgrange / Knowth...

    Trev, could I respectfully suggest you head in the opposite direction - the m'way to Dublin is a pain & you'd effectively be doing 2 sides of a triangle to get to Kesh. Much better to head around the North Antrim Coast Road as far as Derry & then head inland to Kesh. Full details here.

    Trev, here is a route for you to consider. It doesn't look very long at 180 miles, but will be a good, full day's riding on some great roads and in lovely scenery.

    There are two opinions of the GS. There are those who have ridden one who think its fantastic and there are those who haven't who know its crap.
