Pilgrim Paths Day

Saturday 4th was Pilgrim Paths Day so I did the cycle from Ballycumber to Clonmacnoise organised by Offaly Heritage (https://www.facebook.com/offalyheritagenews?fref=ts). My guest Felicity and I cycled over to the start and we picked up Donna and Paula at Boher.

The distance was 25 km which is a bit of a doddle across the bog. The trip on the last section of the Pilgrim road, on top of the esker, is really magnificent. It was so good we did it twice!

Felicity had never been to Clonmacnoise before and neither Donna or Paula had cycled the pilgrim road so it was great to see it with new eyes. By the time we got home there were 80 km in the legs, without any obvious effort.

Thanks to Amanda and the Athlone Walking Club for organising it.
