Total mileage so far: 530.5 miles Total elevation gain so far: 27,223′
Cycled through an area called The Burren today. Didn’t get rained on.
Took in a geosite called Murrooghtoohy.
Made friends with some donkeys.
Passed a castle.
Even had someone to talk to for most of the way. His name is Lee and he’s from Newcastle. He’s riding the exact same crap bike that I am, except that he has no trouble at all getting down into his small ring.
Lee will ride twice as far as me today, all the way to Westport. I’m stopping in Galway where I have two days off before meeting back up with Noel and finally meeting Paul and their entire Mizen-to-Malin tour group.
It’s been a damn fine day and I am absolutely adoring Galway. Sending love & light ❤
