Yesterday I went for an impromptu ride at Ballyhoura with a friend from Limerick. It was short notice, but we managed to get a good two hours of riding in, between the torrential downpours. We spent all of those that on the two tech loops.

As mentioned in a previous article about Ballyhoura Trailcentre, the tech loops are a long way from the main Trail Centre, which in my opinion isn’t worth the effort. However, with some local knowledge, we started from the Ballinaboola car park. From there it is a relatively short climb to the start of either Loop. We managed two runs at both loops. Well worth the effort this time.
