As Bold As Top 5 Cycling Spots in Ireland
Posted on 21 July 2016
We all have that one special place. A place where you can go to forget about everything else. A place where you can breathe, let the wind blow and the breeze take you somewhere breathtaking. A place that makes you feel alive.
Here at As Bold As, we have compiled a list of our top cycling routes just in time for the weekend. Where will you be going? Where is YOUR favourite spot? Let us know below, over on Facebook or on Twitter.
Kicking off our list is....
Howth head has a nice steep hill so that you feel like you’ve accomplished something! Amazing view from the top. Adrenaline buzz when you go downhill. I have such good memories of doing this with friends and family. Lovely coastline views as you head out along by Clontarf and Sutton. If you’re feeling tough, you can take on the coastal stretch along by Malahide.
- The Ring of Kerry
Lots of long slow climbs on this route. On a sunny day, it feels like you could be in Sicily! To refuel stop off in Breen’s Riverside Cafe for a slice of lemon meringue pie.
- Coleraine to Cushendun Cycle along the Antrim Coast Road
The Antrim Coast Road is situated in Northern Ireland. Named as one of the world’s most famous coastal roads, it’s not hard to see why with stunning views of Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge and the Giant’s Causeway.
- The Great Western Greenway, Co. Mayo
What we love most about the Great Western Greenway is that it is traffic-free and (almost entirely) off-road which means that it is especially attractive for those of you who are starting off on your cycling adventure.
- Skerries Coastline
The short coastal stretch from Balbriggan to Skerries is perfect cycling territory. Stop into the lovely Stoop Your Head in Skerries to refuel while overlooking the harbour.
