This week we left Outdoor Escape at 9:30am and headed of up the Mullingar to Castlepollard road... We had about 20 juniors out with us!!One of the biggest in a long time. We spun our legs out the road as far as Donnelly’s filling station and took the next left and headed down the hills preparing ourselves for Johnny Owens TT...We came to the end of the road and we lined up ready to head back up the TT course.

The times were very close with the top 3 been Eoin Lynch with 5:50, Conor Canton with 6:41 and Thomas Kilmurray with 6:42... The rest of the group were pretty close behind, just seconds off the top 3. After that we took a narrow country road but suffered a puncture.  

After we fixed it we continued on and came out beside Lough Owel. We turned right for the covert and did piggery hill just to finish off our journey. We then hit the drops all the way back to Outdoor Escape where after 47km done we were glad to give the legs a rest!
