The second last day of the challenge and finally some break in the weather for a change. Took out the mountain bike and headed for Ardfert, The Spa before heading back to Tralee with a total of 12.5 miles on the clock.
Day 27 and the wet weather couldn’t dampen my need to go for a spin today. Ended up with 21 miles of mostly quiet north Kerry roads and most of it in the rain. I took the mountain bike as it bothers me less if that gets wet as opposed to being on a racing bike and I feel safer on it on wet roads. Today’s route was Ardfert Ballyheigue, Kilmoyley and back Home via Ardfert.
Day 26 and a wet start to a cycle turned out to be quite an dry and tough spin even though it was relatively short at close to 18 Miles. Went from Ardfert to Barrow, Fenit and back to Tralee via The Spa. It was quite windy but still managed to pull in a relatively good time of 56 minutes.
Hard to imagine it’s day 25. This morning’s 15 miles spin bought me in the direction of Abeydorney before heading back towards Ardfert and back into Tralee. Other than nearly getting run over in Abbeydorney by some lunatic behind the wheel I enjoyed it.
Day 22 and the final day before the Ring of Kerry so took easy. Headed off for an early morning spin whilst the weather held in the direction of Ardfert, The Spa before heading back to Tralee. Legs feel good and looking forward to tomorrow’s spin.
On with the second half of the challenge and a mild and breezy Saturday provided the backdrop for a beautiful 20 miles out towards Ballyheigue, Kilmoyley and back home via Ardfert.
Day 5, the first of the wet days of the challenge and I literally got soaked wet. I ended up doing nearly 13 miles and was very glad to get home. I headed for Ardfert, and came back to Tralee via The Spa.
Route was as follows:
This 35k/22mi. route heads along the coastline from Tralee towards the village of Ardfert and continues northwards towards Ballyheigue passing Banna Beach on the left on route. Just before Ballyheigue there is a right turn to bring you along an inland route which meanders up and down with gentle climbs and descents through the village of Kilmoyley. The road allows a flat and rolling pace until the village of Abbeydorney is reached where from there until most of the ways into Tralee there is a climb with a serious of undulating sections which in isolation are not dfficult but together can tire the body before a very welcome descent back into tralee.
