Today was day 23 and what better way to spend it than cycling around the Ring of Kerry as part of the 28th Annual Ring of Kerry Cycle. Was a little apprehensive as to how the legs would hold after 22 days cycling in a row but I do think that the mileage in the legs made the event that bit even more enjoyable. I was cycling it with some buddies so was taking it pretty easy for the day in general. The morning was a little bit dull but dry. I was astounded at the numbers involved and found it really difficult to get a parking spot in the morning even though I though I knew all the “good spots”.
Really enjoyed the entire day with the highlights either being a pint of beer shandy in An Siopa Dubh in Castlecove about half way around the Ring or else the Jacuzzi at the end of a long day’s cycling.

Apologies for the lack of regular updates on this recently but I hope that the good weather has been enough of an incentive to get you out on the bike as much as possible. By this stage I hope you are used to regular spins on the bike and beginning to feel that little bit stronger and more confident with each spin. It is now May with approximately 8 training weeks left until the Ring of Kerry. Depending on your progress to date these weeks could be the most important in your training in ensuring that you enjoy yourself on the day.
