    Unfortunatly the recovery services fail to give an "On Line"** service

    Anyway could you imagine trying to stop the 'house' (23 tons ish) with the bike that would be worth a picture

    Sorry to hear that Shep.

    As you say though it's hard to attend all the events in a year.
    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.

    Post bridge out

    anyone thinking of taking the scenic route to Achill via N59 and Leenane should think again our seasonal july weather caused a land slide which in turn washed the only bridge away

    what do you expect for July
