It’s been a while since we did a bit of climbing together and Sally Gap to Glencree Reconciliation Center for coffee seems ideal. Weather looks OK, for the morning at least so we should be ‘good to go’. Early turn off for those wanting a shorter route might be difficult. Manor Kilbride and over Ballysmutton and round the lakes could be a possible (and only, I venture). Its cooler in the mornings and Sally might be having blow so dress a little warmer than usual.
Bring some jelly beans for energy (or similar, of your choice), water and some sheckles for the coffeeman.
Bring you ID and ensure your tyres are inflated to correct pressures to minimize the risk of punctures.
If you want to chat to your neighbour on the road. No eye contact. Keep your eyes front, staying alert to whats going on up ahead.
