    Could you indicate the routes please? thanks.

  2. Hi Donnacha,

    Thanks for details of the route. At Diarmuid O’Sullivan’s House & Cars’ Yard do I cycle onto the Currans Road and join the main Castleisland/Farranfore Road or do I cycle on the Tralee Road until the Garden Centre and take a left and join the main Castleisland/Farranfore Road?

    Willl be much easier than the Conor Pass Cycle.


  3. Hi Donnacha,

    The 80 Km distance which route does it take as I approach #Diarmuid O’Sullivan’s House & Cars’ Yard from Ballyfinnane do I cycle onto the Currans Road and join the main Castleisland/Farranfore Road or do I cycle on the Tralee/Farranfore Road until the Garden Centre and take a left at Garden Centre and join the main Castleisland/Farranfore Road, or do I take a left at # and proceed to Ballycarthy & into Castleisland.

    Sorry for being a nuisance but I like to know where I am going.

    Many thanks. Joan

  4. Hi Donnacha,

    Just to let you know that I completed the Conor Pass Cycle. It was tough but am glad I did it. Looking forward to Cycle Sunday week.
