Cycles through Kerry

Revisiting an old friend, twice!

Posted: May 9, 2015 · By: Donnacha Clifford · Comments: 0

Looking back at my records it was last Summer since I cycled the Conor Pass. I guess the time to visit the old girl had come around again and as it turned it out we ended up going back home the same way again which meant I got to climb it from both sides today. I've had little in the way of distance cycling over the past number of weeks for a number of reasons but a break in what has been a bad few days of weather left no excuse this morning! [...]

#fitforfeb 4th and final week

Posted: March 2, 2015 · By: Dave Elton · Comments: 0

Becoming part of a routine! Were as week 1 had an element of excitement at starting something new and fresh, the middle weeks had me down with a cold and at times finding the whole thing hard and laborious. The final week just flew by. I have to say I was well and truly in routine mode. This little exercise had become part of my life. It was just a case of getting out there and doing it...no questions asked! [...]

#fitforfeb week 2

Reality starts to bite! With what was a good first week down in #fitforfeb week 2 proved to be a bit more demanding.

Nothing more to it, just grin and bear it and do my best! [...]

#FitforFeb first week.

Posted: February 8, 2015 · By: Dave Elton · Comments: 0

One week down three to go! So that's the first week of my #fitforfeb exercise down. For all of February the idea is to get out and do either a minimum 25 km cycle or an 8 km walk. The 7 days have panned out with a total of 4 days cycling and 3 days of walks. The 4 cycles have taken me 193 km in total with the 3 walks adding up to 32.5 km and included in that was the steep and snowy Caherconree Mountain. [...]

Mob handed out in Brosna.

A big contingent head for the Limerick border. Like rabbits popping their heads out into the fresh air after the big bad fox had moved on, we had an unusually big turn out this morning. Plenty of familiar faces coming out of their own bolt holes. Cycling matters got off to a slow start in 2015 for the none "etapers." Well between the dodgy weather, clashing of events and resisting the urge to get back out!? all contributed to the lack of numbers, but today was different! [...]
