    Have fun, George! We'll be about the same latitude, but I'll be to the west of you up in Michigan.

    jibj. You have studied your routing. I was there last November. Dublin is really congested. Rural roads are often busy and no shoulders. I am sure bike maps can get you around such areas.

    Hi
    At the moment my plans are Slea head, Ring of Kerry, Cork, Cliffs of Moher

    Gap of Dunloe, Connor pass, Wicklow, Louth

    Not necessarily in that order of course!!

    But for a pint of Smithwicks I would cycle a thousand miles of broken glass, I have Marathon XR's, so it would be OK
