This 41k/25mi. route leaves tralee and heads in the direction of Castleisland. From Castleisland the road meanders towards Farranfore and then turning right to head back into tralee. This route is very flat with only one slight hill whilst heading under the Currans bypass towards the turn off for Gortatlea. It would be considered one of the safest routes in the county as most of the cycle (with the exception of the Castleisland to Farranfore stretch [approx 4 miles]) is on main roads with smooth hard shoulders which give plenty room for both cyclists and motorists alike. This route is very popular with cyclists from Tralee, Castleisland and their hinterlands.

This route is one which can be your best friend or your not so best friend. On a day that you want to spin your legs it can be relaxing however when winds prevail this route offers very little in the way of shelter.
