....extend the spin by continuing straight in Stradbally (instead of turnin left for Athy) and headin across the Windy Gap, you come out on the Athy/ Kilkenny road. Hang left for Ballylynan and on into Athy and can do the Athy/ Stradbally run on the way back. Great road, lovely pussie and always a few bikes out!

Great thread. Just a suggestion. It would make it easier if the County was at the head of the route. Takes too long to wade through all the threads to look for a good route in a particular area.
Anyway heres my local spin.

East Clare

Athlone to Ballina via roscommon tulsk onto foxford, thats a spin nice and early in the morning wide enough loads good few straight s and bends to keep you entertained.

Ballina to enniscrone coast road under canopy of trees you that will test your metal.

Ballina tobercurry past glolf club up into hills narrows down twisty but by god fantastic.



lots of helpfull people to around that neck of woods if yer 2-Stroke decides to melt its piston " Cheers Dave Chester "

Next time try heading to Dundalk then across the Ardee road (lots of twists , some a little tight) and then for a bit of a challenge across to Kells , take the backroad from Kells to Slane and then back to Drogheda.

Enjoy

N5 - Charlestown to Strokestown is some road, great surface and great combo of straights and sweeping bends...

good long one here mostly good roads or bits a shit that lead to good ones and bits a motorway that lead to good ones. and the little squiggle at arva is because the map says there is no road where there clearly is(on it every day) so just head for longford after arva. there are a few good one linking parts of the route ballyconnell via newtown gore- ballinamore drumora-arva .enjoy

bear in mind i havent rode these since the snow so take care

The N69 Between Tarbert and Foynes is heven with the sun at you back and empty tarmac infront of you.
You could also do a lap i often do on a Sunday.
Continue in from foynes and cut across to Newcastlewest then back to Abbeyfeale Where you can head back to listowel and on to Tarbert to complete the lap.

Its a nice spin of about 60miles or so
