The landscape is constantly changing around every bend in the road, from the crashing Atlantic Ocean to the quiet of pristine lakes and peaceful river valleys. There are hundreds of miles of roads to travel, lots of islands to explore, gardens well worth visiting, and lots of people to talk to on your way.

Today is one of the most impressive & picturesque cycles you could wish to do & whichever option you decide to take – the scenery along the route is stunning. The longer option takes you on an amazing cycling over the Healy Pass through some of the most breath-taking scenery in Ireland. This route is challenging so please only take this route if you feeling in good health & are reasonably fit. The alternate route is through the glorious Borlin Valley which is fabulous and possibly less well known & therefore quieter. Both routes have places along the way for refreshments but we still suggest you bring some food along with you and plenty to drink. Today’s Cycle Distance: 72kms/ 45ml via the Healy Pass or 48kms/ 30 mls via the Borlin Valley.
Today’s Cycle Distance: 42km /26ml.
