Our route from Skibereen to Bantry winds through scenery that has never been touched by the hand of man. When we whisper about Ireland’s hidden secrets, this is what we mean – this is a landscape that is rural, rugged and breathtakingly beautiful in its wildness.
This is west Cork at its best…Beautiful beaches, amazing scenery, wild flowers in abundance and loads of lovely villages where we can stop to enjoy delicious local food and a good strong coffee. Speaking of coffee, you might need a little energy boost on this stage as the level has gone up a notch to moderate/difficult but don’t let this stop you: use one of our elite road bikes or let our snazzy e-bikes lend you a helping hand.
Whatever happens, make sure you don’t miss this one.
