Ravensdale and Lordship in the Wee County

The Pats Football Club, Lordship. Co Louth

Sometimes I think I’m the oldest swinger in town. In spite of the rain and the cold there were 6 cyclists at Felda serious about going for a cycle this morning. 2 were past pupils and one was the wife of a past pupil. The others were also in the prime of life and had a gung ho look about them which depressed me. Then it…

A Bike Ride to County Down

 Life breaks all of us and after we are strong in the broken places. Hemingway
It was lovely to meet Adrian today and to find him recovering so well. We all have accidents on the bike but it's how we recover that matters. The one thing that never seems to change is the love of cycling.

We cycled to the Flagstaff today. We took the easy way, up the Old Newry Road to the Sportsman's Roundabout. Then because we felt like doing a bit of work, but not too much,we went into Ravensdale Park and continued to Dromad. After the Carrickdale we turned right and were met with a sharp hill initially, but it was not impossible and we were…

Flow Gently, Sweet Afton

Twelve of us set off from Felda at 10 am. I led the group as far as the Greengates, then pulled in to encourage them to go to the front. The strong group pulled away rapidly and I was happy to see them…

What a beautiful Spring day today, thank God. Blue skies, dry roads and light, blessed light, everywhere. In fact the perfect day for a spin on your bike and a bonus if you have good company, which I had. We set off from Felda on the stroke of 10…
