The Thing of Kerry

Posted: August 9, 2015 · By: Dave Elton · Comments: 0

A 200 km DIY audax off Kerry's beaten track. It's funny how things go. Last week I checked my facebook  page and saw some guy doing a 300 km ride in England, mainly in the dark.

I had a 200 km ride planned with an extremely early start thrown in, for the night ride experience. [...]
