Castletownbere to Sneem via Dursey Island and the Ring of Beara

Day 111, Weds 19 April

The longest, toughest, but most rewarding cycling day so far. No Lifeboat Station for the next 130 or so miles, so just the 70 miles today, with 1,372 metres of climbing, 6hrs 18mins in the saddle and 4299 kCals burned on the hardest but most picturesque climbs to-date, on the Ring of Beara and a little of the Ring of Kerry.

    Great photos, Steve. What a beautiful part of the world and populated by lovely people too. I wish I was brave enough to move over there before the June election in order to get away from the nasty country we are becoming.

    Being in the saddle is always a great antidote to what’s being going on politically…

    A fine first block of riding Steven and a particularly lovely 70 mile stage from Castletown to Sneem which was scheduled to be 45 miles – was it so good that you did it twice??!!

    The RIng of Beara and the Ring of Kerry on the small ring no doubt! – that’s a great day’s riding in itself buddy – you’d eat our Burrington Combe training ride for breakfast now…!

    …and today is a rest day so it’s time to put on your STOUT shoes and walk instead to the nearest pub!

    love – Keith x
