30 Days and 30 cycles: Day 27

Posted: July 10, 2011 · By: Donnacha Clifford · Comments: 0

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. [...]

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 [...]

Woke up this morning with tireder legs than expected as they felt good yesterday evening after 106 miles but the night's recovery had not improved them. Under normal circumstances the feet would be up for the day but at this stage I just got on the bike. 11 miles of very easy pedalling around Tralee town on the mountain bike. No land speed records broken today but another day [...]

30 Days and 30 Cycles: Day 23: 28th Annual Ring of Kerry

Posted: July 5, 2011 · By: Donnacha Clifford · Comments: 0

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 [...]

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 [...]
