Kenmare to Ballylongford. 116 miles 5000 ft of climbing
On the basis that we were riding the Ring of Kerry we had hoped for dry day. How wrong we were. Apart from two hours between 9.30 and 11.30 it rained the rest of the day. At one point it was raining so hard that the rain drops seemed to be bouncing up from the ground and wetting the pedals more than the rain drops that had yet to hit the ground.
Leaving Kenmare we travelled along the N70 passing through Sneem then to Waterville. This included the first of the 600 foot climbs. We then cycled down to Cahersiveen and then onto Kilorglin before reaching Tralee. From there we followed the N69 heading north to Listowel and then to our overnight stay in Ballylongford.
The Owners of the B&B were extremely accommodating providing us with an evening meal of soup and roast chicken. What a treat!
A gentle reminder to all that Brendan and Peter are cycling the coast or Ireland in aid of Home Start Uttlesford. Please give generously!
