Community Bike Ride

Sunday November 19 at 10.00am we left for a cycle to Templemore.  Weather wasn’t great to start with drizzly rain, but that didn’t stop us.  We had some great chats along the route with each other.  The weather had cleared up before we reached Templemore and here we enjoyed a hot coffee/tea with a treat.  The service was excellent from the staff in One19 coffee shop as usual.  We headed back to Borrisoleigh Via Barnane taking in the views of The Devil’s Bit.  Returning safely to the car par in Borrisoleigh where we started.  Well done to everyone who took part in this community bike ride.  Safe cycling to everyone.
