Summer has come and gone, and then decided to come back again, but who’s complaining, certainly not me.

We had a slight bit of indecision on what route to take but eventually we headed out to Ballynacarrigy, on to Carrickboy and a tea stop in Ballymahon. To be honest, I was unsure as to what group to go with and calling a hilly route didn’t ease my fears. What also gave me pause for thought was an average speed of 31km/h until we got to Ballymahon. While in Ballymahon there was an impromptu photo shoot for the local tidy towns, just as well we sent out the good looking ones eh!

Then it was off to the hills of Ballymore and Uisneach and when they were negotiated it was a quick turn at Loughnavalley and onto the greenway back to Mullingar which was a nice change, but for a big group the jury’s out on how well it works.

Super spin…………..and I didn’t get dropped.
