It has long been an ambition of mine to complete an on road off road cycle route around Carlow County.

We may be the second smallest county in Ireland but we has so much to offer – magnificent scenery, diverse terrain, important historical and heritage sites, great places to stay and to eat. It’s one of Ireland’s best kept secrets!

I was fortunate this week to have the opportunity to complete a circuit of the county and I have made a video of some of the highlights.

The route is 195kms long, takes in 2,680 metres of climbing, has 45kms off road cycling and most of the rest of it on minor roads, with minimal traffic. A joy to cycle on!

Hope you like – and please share!
