|Biked it this morning. Beautiful day. St paddys day also. Roads were empty. Left my house at 6.30am after a strong cup of coffee. |
Went Portmarnock Malahide Ferview Clontarf, Sutton, Howth by the graveyard , Summit pub, then into Howth village and home.
It took me 2.30hours at a easy to hard pace on a bike that weighs a ton. I love doing this circuit on a Sunday afternoon. You have the wind behind you for the 1st 5 miles.
Then when you get to Malahide it is very much sheltered until Clare Hall when it's a push against the wind into Ferview. 80% of the time the wind is behind you all the way into sutton.
You then have a 3 mile climb to Howth summit making sure to take a right at the pub up to the car park. Very steep but the views are super. Its down hill to Howth village, very downhill!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
Its 3miles flat to my house were a quick shower and around to Graingers for some Guinness. The best pints on the Northside.
