John's brother, Gordon came by to visit in the
morning, so we did not start our ride down to sister Daphne's
house until 1:30 in the afternoon. Brother David had mapped out
a nice route down that we loaded into the GPS. We took in a few
roads that were new to John and followed a very nice rolling route
down to Carlow. Funny in all my previous trips, John had insisted
we had to go over mountains to get to Carlow. Turns out that isn't
David doesn't have a rack on the bike John was
borrowing, and he wouldn't have space in the saddlebag for all
of our gear, so I would have to CARRY MY OWN STUFF! I had brought
over a large Carradice bag that I mounted and filled with warm
Photos and commentary by John
I told Pamela this would be an easy, downhill ride...
but I forgot about the motorway overpass in Kill.
We got a late start and dusk comes early in late November.
Happily, we made it to Moone before the shop selling heavenly
biscuit cake closed!
We rode by, but didn't stop to peer at the Moone
High Cross in the dark, but it was over yonder.
