38 Kilometres road trip on a sunny Tuesday 9th August

This was a training trip. Sinead and I just doing another warm up for the September cross Ireland cycle with Paul Morton and friends.

There is a nice biking and hiking route from Castlebar and the National Museum at Turlough, to Bohola on grassy back roads, even linking up to Kiltamagh!!! Almost no traffic, forests, bogs and cattle grazing in fields of green. sorry no pics…. next time.
