    Saturday rides

    There is no set agenda for the Saturday in Killarney, but I will probably take a run out to a Photo Rally point near Ballyferriter and will be taking Mr K to a pub that makes it's own real ale. We will also stop of at Antarctic explorer Tom Crean's pub, the South Pole Inn.

    If you want to come along for the run then you will be very welcome.

    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.

    Gerry C has also posted a couple of suggestions for rides. Hopefully he can post the Garmin files here.





    Now that I look at it Gerry's second route looks pretty much like mine, apart from the off-road that is.

    I will try to be there for ten am. Don't wait for me if I am late... Have not ridden on the Dingle in ten years so looks like the one for me, but I'll miss out the Glencar bit to go back for a pint at the hotel before heading home again

    How do you propose to drag Mr. K away from the pubs of Killarney

    A pub that brews it's own ale is the key here I think Peter.

    So just out of interest, who aims to do what...

    A wild guess, but are a lot of people staying in Kilarney and not riding at all????

    I plan to take a little run out to Dingle. Never made it over there when we were in Tralee in the summer so thought I'd put it right

    Sorry Richie,
    only noticed this now.
    That would be unlikely in my experience - unless it's lashing down i'd reckon there'll be many Tossers scattered about the roads of the Kingdom!

    Guys, I have a very limited time scale for this weekend as I am looking after younger son and my father is showing up for the weekend.

    I aim to be there sat morning at about 9 30 - 10... Then go for a run with yee...

    Or if anyone is interested will run down through the Borlin and Priests leap up over the healey pass ... Then I will head home and yee can make your own way back to Kilarney...

    Just putting a feeler out, some of the best bits of road in West Cork...
