The weather is mild, so we’re all heading to Wicklow. Wrap up as it’s colder when you climb and then descend, bring a rain jacket, wear your overshoes and carry bars, bananas or gels to get you home.
Group 1, beginners, about 60k
Westwood Clontarf to Rathfarnam (option to join there), up Stocking Lane to the car park. Continue on to the Glencree turn and descend into Enniskerry for coffee. The mixed berry crumble in Poppy’s is highly recommended. Finally home through Stepaside and Dundrum.
Group 2 and 3 (Inter and Advanced) about 80k
Same as group 1 except instead of the Glencree turnoff, continue to Sally Gap crossroads. Go left, down and then up over Lough Tay before descending again and back to Enniskerry. Same as above re coffee, cake and home.
Aim to be at Westwood for 8:45am for a 9am start or 9:30am at the Yellow House in Rathfarnam.
