Sorry Dave,
If you look closely on the mapmyride link I included my cycle from Wicklow to Ashford and back ... so my bad.
Will add on 8.4k next week no problem...
Delighted your numbers are swelling...

I'm hoping to make it out this Saturday as I heard there was a lot of whinging. I'm hoping to stir as much shit as possible and was wondering which would be the best group to join for this? I'll be bringing my shit stirring spoon.

Hi all, Below are the routes for Saturday the 21st January. Obviously they're weather dependent so might need some amendment if there's ice. (also no need to map up and down N11).

Just a word of warning for group 5. I live in Redcross and road has been scraped back and resurfaced for small section from roughly where you turn from Avoca road to nearly where the bridge is heading away from Avoca towards Barndarrig direction. If wet it will be slippy. In addition there is now a lovely pot hole on LHS close to approach to small bridge as you leave Recross. (nb bridge is not one in Redcross near shop but one in hollow as you come out of Redcross to then head up hill towards Barndarrig). At the moment pot hole partially hidden by loose fill they have placed in it. It may still be there tomorrow it may have been repaired just be aware as would be in line of inner group cycling.

Also, just to add - take it handy around Annamoe - greasy roads.
