No weather for bikes today, started out at 1c and didn't get much warmer, snow, hail and thunder was enough to keep Flymo under lock & key

Good Job!
we couldn't get near the Suck bridge Saturday. But we could see it ahead even though we ran out of road.
well done for getting up to it.

Ignore whereby says road flooded and continue straight on up the track, take the next two turns right and the next left, this will take you to the other side of that flooded road and onto the bridge, this bridge is a replacement for the very old timber one that was an Irish photorally shot a good few years back, it would have been very risky to take your bike across that one as many of the planks were decayed.

I have signed up for this, but one thing I am unsure of is: the GPS cordinates, they look like they are in decimal but on my chancy young wan, it gives several options for format, I mean about 20 odd. Are the points in Irish or UK decimal, or is there any difference at all.

they are in degrees north and west

So for the Suck bridge for instance
53.432028, -8.263216 (the decimal is fraction of minutes , GPS coords are in the format of Degrees, minutes, seconds)
means
5325'55.3"N 815'47.6"W

Even easier for you is simply paste 53.432028, -8.263216 into google maps and it will show you the exact position.


On the IBA Photo rally site you can download a GPX file. This can be loaded directly into your g.p.s. device. Sorry but you'll have to read your instructions for that, it tends to be different for different makes.
