Hi, I need help with planning a full trip around the coast of the entire North/South Ireland I plan to do this for Charity in 2012 around the summertime, anyone is welcome to join at any stretch or the whole thing - I am not a fit person and do not cycle much so this will be an extra challenge!! hence 2012!

Regards


John

wouldn't want to go on an 'organised' tour.
Does not fill me with desire!
I'll look at their route, though!

I'm currently planning a route to hug the coastlines starting from Dublin, south and around to Galway, and north (cross border) and ferry across to Scotland where I'll ship my bike back. If you need any information on a route email me at DJHatPioneer@gmail.com. Should be fun!

I'm fully committed for 2011 (End to End, Holland Touring Week, C2C x2) but would love to plan ahead for a 2012 ride in Ireland. Stranraer to Belfast ferry would be my preferred starting point as I could pedal to Stranraer in one day from my home on Tyneside. I too would like to follow the progress of this thread.

My Latest Route: Jan 2011 Whitley Bay to Bellingham

Hi there,
I’m planning to cycle the Ireland end to end in September this year with my brother and friend.
Doing the Mizen to Malin direction and here is the route we will hopefully be doing.
http://www.vision2020kano.org/events/the-cycle-route-to-malin-head/ the plan is to do it over 6 days. Unfortunately will probably not have any support so will have to take panniers. Hoping to raise some money for charity but have not decided which one yet, most likely MIND or one of the mental health charities as two of us are nurses.
Hoping to stay in Hotels/B&BS.
If anyone has done this I would appreciate any advice i.e. what essentials we need to take, carriage of the bikes, getting from CORK airport to Mizen head, training schedule advice. Also if anyone is interested in joining us your more than welcome. WE are moderate cyclists but have never undertaken anything like this before so will be putting in plenty of hours on the saddle prior to trip.

Hi Dudley
I have travelled all of Ireland in the last 46yrs, I love Ireland.
Buy a Collins Ireland Touring Road Atlas.
Plot the Cities / Towns you wish to visit, using the map, the B roads / other road will give you, your the daily routes.
The Majority of Cities Towns will have good & reasonable priced Accomodation.
Where is the Irish starting Point? if its Dublin/ Dun Laoghaire head for Wicklow.
Rosslare head for Dungarvan.
Cork = Clonakilty
Larne = Ballycastle
There are spectacular & wonderful places to see.
If south of Dublin, go too Johnny Foxes Pub up in Glencullen the girls will have a Great Time.
Hope this helps, if you want more help my email is below.
Kind regards Daly

Hiya,
I'd certainly like to do a coastal cycle in Ireland in 2012. I'd say I am more of a 50-70 miles per day than 100. More leisure than endurance. Please keep me abreast.

Brings back memories.

Rail Sail to Ireland is not much more than the ferry from anywhere in the UK so its easy to combine some touring.
Most if Ireland is great and its not too far from Belfast down to Strangford Lough where there is a wide choice of camp sites.

A port to port bike ride using Rail Sail both ways is convenient.

My Latest Route: Feb 2012 Bowes Railway Path Start to End
